Problem

What type of bond results from the end -on overlap of orbitals?

a) σ (sigma) bond

b) hydrogen bond

c) π (pi) bond

d) ionic bond

Solution

B is incorrect. A hydrogen bond is a form of electrostatic interaction that occurs between partial negative and partial positive charges. This occurs when you have a highly electronegative element (such as N, O, and F) bonded to hydrogen.

D is also incorrect. An ionic bond forms between positively-charged and negatively-charged ions. This occurs in ionic compounds such as NaCl.
