Bond Length

Postby AlexandraZuniga1L » Thu Nov 15, 2018 11:15 pm

Are longer bonds the weaker bonds that are easily broken and more involved in a reaction?

Yes, bond length and bond strength usually have a correlation. The longer the bond, the weaker the bond; The shorter the bond, the stronger the bond.

Yes that's right, also I wanted to add that a single bond will be longer than a double bond, and the double bond will be longer than the triple: all because multiple bonds will be shorter. The stronger the bond, the shorter length, and the stronger the attraction.

longer bond = weaker bond
shorter bond = stronger bond

This correlation also goes along with the amount of bonding occurring: so single bonds are the weakest and longest, while triple bonds are the strongest and shortest.

And sigma bonds are stronger than pi bonds, right?

yes due to the larger amount of overlap between the two orbitals
