  2. When the electron orbitals overlap laterally, the bond is called the pi () bond. In pi bonds the resulting overlap is not maximum and these bonds are relatively weak. A molecule of ethylene or ethene (C2H4) has 4 bonds and 2 bonds. In pi bonds the resulting overlap is not maximum and these bonds are relatively weak.
