So I know Professor Lavelle discussed the relationship between bond length and the corresponding strength of this bond. Shorter bonds = stronger bonds, but can someone explain why this is the case? is it because a shorter distance means the atoms' electrons are closer to the protons?
Adding on, when you have two atoms bonded together, a larger radius means that the center of each atom is further apart. When the bond is shorter, the atoms are closer together and the attractive force between the protons of one and electrons of the other are stronger.
