# How many pi bonds are present in acetylsalicylic acid [Solved] There are five, so there are FIVE pi bonds present my young chemist!

5 , 3 for the benzene ring , 1 for the acetyl group, 1 for the acid

We draw the Lewis structure (you can see it here):

5 , 3 for the benzene ring , 1 for the acetyl group, 1 for the acid

There are five, so there are FIVE pi bonds present my young chemist!

and every single bond is a sigma, a double bond is a sigma and a pi and a triple is a sigma and two pi.

CH3COOH has 7 sigma bonds, they are all the C-H bonds (3 total), C-C bond (1 total), C-O bond (1 total), O-H bond (1 total) and one from the C=O. It has 1 pi bond which is the C=O bond. So the answer is E. I hope this helps.

You just want pi bonds and there are no triple bonds, so just count the double bonds.
