Double covalent bonds in carbon dioxide
The compound shown in the image is carbon dioxide. Carbon, the central atom in the molecule is bonded to two oxygen atoms. Carbon shares four electrons with each oxygen atom. The carbon atom is sp hybridized while the two oxygen atoms are sp2 hybridized.
The carbon atom is attached to each oxygen atom via a double covalent bond which implies the sharing of four electrons. Two electrons form the sigma bond while the other two electrons are shared in the pi bond thereby giving the double covalent bind indicated by the lines in the structure of the molecule.
