Expert Answer

Step 1

Sigma bonds are formed by the head-to-head overlap of the orbitals.  This overlapping may constitute of s-s, s-p, s-d or p-d orbitals.  A pi bond is formed by the overlapping of the p-orbitals.

Step 2

(a)The given orbitals undergo a head-to-head overlap, that results in the formation of a sigma bonding molecular orbital.

The electron probability for both the given molecular orbitals is higher along the line joining the nuclei.

Step 3

(b)The overlap among the given p-orbitals results in the formation of a pi bond between the given atomic orbitals.

The ele...
