Dissociation Energy

Postby Melissa_Aguirre1J » Thu May 24, 2018 9:07 am

How do you measure dissociation energy? Do we need to know that?

Disassociation energy is the energy required to break a bond. For instance, if you were asked which bond had a higher disassociation energy, a double bond or triple bond, you would say the triple bond because it is harder to break. We have not gone over how to calculate disassociation energy so I wouldn't worry about numbers, just about the concept in relationship to the strength of different bonds.

Dissociation energy is a measure of the strength of a bond. Therefore, it can be measured by breaking bonds, and recording how much energy was required to do so.

What other things do we just need to know conceptually?
