In class, we discussed single, double, and triple bonds; however, is it possible to have a quadruple bond. And if so, what are the conditions?

For this course, they are extremely rare, and practically do not exist for our purposes.

I am pretty sure that we do not have to worry about that for this class because of their complexity, but it would be fun to know.

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.

Quadruple bonds are extremely rare so I don't think for this class we need to worry about it.

I think they are possible (in a lab can be generated) but there are none naturally occurring, and like these people said^^definitely not for this class.

They're hardly mentioned and rare so we would only have to be informed of the single, double, and triple bonds.

They are rare and we do not need to worry about it for this course.

As bonds increase, does energy increase? Also, are shared pairs stronger than lone pairs?
