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 is not so strong as […]

Why we have to provide activation energy for completion of a reaction?

To understand this concept we must be aware of Threshold energy or activation energy. The threshold energy or the activation energy is the minimum amount of energy that is required for the conversion of reactants into the products . According to collision theory the reactant species collide with each other to make the product. But every collision don’t bring about […]
