How Many Pi Bonds Are In Sp3 Hybridized Atom?

A Pi bond is created from a side to side overlap of two p orbitals from 2 adjacent atoms.

A single bond has one sigma bond.

A double bond has one sigma bond and one pi bond.

A triple bond has one sigma and 2 pi bonds.

Sp hybridized atoms have 2 sp orbitals and 2 p orbitals that can make 2 Pi bonds.

Sp2 hybridized atoms has 3 sp2 orbitals and 1 p orbital that can make 1 Pi bond.

Sp3 hybridized atoms have 4 sp3 orbitals and 0 p orbitals, not being able to make any Pi bonds.
