Re: Carbon Monoxide and Oxygen bound to hemoglobin?

Its essentially an irreversible process when CO binds to hemoglobin, whereas O2 isn't because it's affinity to bind to heme is much stronger than the O2 molecule.

Re: Relative acidity

Essentially, because F is so electronegative, it has an extremely strong hold on H's electron, which thus requires more energy to break. Because HI has a longer bond + I is less electronegative, its easier to break and thus dissociates more than HF.

Re: Ionic character in covalent bonds

An easy way to determine ionic character in covalent bonds is looking at the atoms on the periodic table. If the atoms are closer, the more likely it is covalent with the atom of higher electronegativity pulling the shared electrons more closely to itself.

Re: Strength and Length

Essentially, the more bonds between two atoms just means that the electron density between the two are much higher than atoms with less bonds. Thus, the higher likelihood of electrons in the middle act to pull the positively charged nuclei of the atoms closer together, making it harder to break.
