Why sigma bond is stronger than pi bond?

Actually the sigma bond involves head to head overlapping of orbitals, due to which the overlapping takes place on a larger extent. That makes the bond more stronger as compared to pie bond. In pie bond there is a sidewise overlapping of orbitals which leads to lesser extent of overlapping and thus the bond formed

What are the Differences between elements, compounds, and mixtures ?

In our daily life we come across different kind of particles, some look alike and some we know by common names. tody we are going to arrange almost all the particles around us. Elements :- it is the purest form of matter which has only one kind of atoms. There are 118 elements known till

What is the difference between stereoisomers, optical isomers and enantiomers?

Stereoisomers :- These are the compounds that have same molecular formula but different arrangement of atoms in the space. Optical isomers :- The compunds that have same molecular formula but they rotate the plane polarised light to the different side, right side-dextrorotatory and left levorotatory. Enantiomer :- These are the compounds that are mirror images

Distillation and fractional distillation.

Distillation is a type of separating process in which two miscible liquids are separated from each other by using their different boiling points. the one with lower boiling point , boils first and its vapours are passed through a condenser for cooling and droplets are received on the other side in a beaker. this process
