I actually have a question regarding the bonds that may be extremely obvious to some. If you have an atom bonded to another with a triple or double bond, is the bond more strong than a single bond or does it simply just mean that they are sharing three or two electrons rather than one?
I believe the bond is stronger when there are more bonds. So in terms of energy needed to break the bonds single<double<triple. Also, interestingly, for the length of a bond the more bonds an atom has the shorter the bond. So a triple bond is shorter than a double bond and a double bond is shorter than a single bond.
