    Do you have a textbook? We can help with specific questions but this forum isn't necessarily the best place for teaching to take place.

    In terms of definitions?

    Homolytic fission is the fragmenting of a bond where each atom retains one of the bonded electrons, e.g. A-B -> A. + B.
    Pi bonds occur with the overlapping of p-orbitals.

    Do you have an example question of where you're struggling?
