Leak under kitchen sink

I noticed water on the floor in the kitchen and found
the pipe that it was leaking from under the kitchen sink.
My question is do I have to replace the piece or is there any plumber product that might stop the leak at least temporarily?
It looks like a small hole is where the leak is coming from
and wondering if there is any type of tape, putty or something that might work?
Thanks for any suggestions, tutorials, links, etc.

Yes, you have to replace the pipe although you can probably replace it with PVC plastic easier and cheaper than the chrome-plated pipe you have. You can also try to wrap plastic electrical tape tightly around the pipe starting a couple of inches before the leak and extending a couple of inches beyond the leak for a temporary fix. The tighter the tape the better.

If you want to replace it yourself, post a few more pictures including a couple from a bit further back to allow us to see the entire installation so we can better advise you.

Hi,

Go to the home store and ask for a center waste kit. Thats what it looks like you have. I believe they come with the two tailpieces for coming off the sink strainer. The pic below only shows the basics.

Thanks so much for these responses and the pics of the PVC pieces.
I am including more pics and looks like some of the pieces have been
replaced with PVC already, funny I didnt notice that yet-until you
mentioned the PVC, thanks!
I did put some electrical tape on
it in the mean time, havent turned on
water yet but thanks for the suggestion.

OK. Are you hiding something???????? Hmmmm????...LOL.

Why dont you want to show the right side sink connection? looks like something is there. Could be a garbage disposal but not sure...ha ha

Anyway you will need to buy the centerwaste I described below and probably a additional tailpiece for the left sink.

All parts are trimmable. Meaning you can cut to size.
