What type of bond is stronger?

Postby Ryan Fang 1D » Mon Nov 13, 2017 10:20 am

What type of bond is stronger and what would we use to determine the bond strength?

Triple bonds are the strongest, followed by double bonds and then single bonds. When I am trying to determine which molecule has a stronger bond I typically draw a lewis structure. Also note that for molecules with resonance, the bond strength could be somewhere in between a single and double, or double and triple (depending on the structures).

To determine bond strength, you must draw the lewis structure so that you can find out which bonds are triple, double or single (triple is the strongest type of bond, single is the weakest). Also atoms with a greater electronegative difference will have shorter bonds, which makes them stronger.
