How are double and triple bonds physically different from single bonds?
Single bond :
There are only two electrons involved in the single bond formation and the covalent bond formed is sigma bond only there are no pi bonds .This bond is formed between two hybridised orbitals .
Double bond and triple bond :
Covalent bonds between atoms can be single, with two electrons shared;
double, with four electrons shared;
triple bonds, with six electrons shared.
