Bond length strength

Postby Katherine Chhen 3I » Fri Oct 25, 2019 5:46 pm

How are we able to determine the strength of different bonds?

I believe that this value is typically given when needed in a problem. It comes from experimentally performed data.

The bond length will be supplied to you on a test. However, it's important to remember that double bonds are shorter than single bonds, and double bonds are also stronger than single bonds as well.

All bond lengths we have been exposed to were given to us in the problem. Dr. Lavelle stated that these lengths were found through experimental data calculations and that we were specifically not going to get too in depth into that.

Bond strength and length will typically be given to you in the problem, on an information sheet, and certain ones might be required to be memorized. However, it's important to remember that triple bonds are stronger than double bonds, which are stronger than single bonds, and triple bonds are shorter than double bonds, which are shorter than single bonds.

The more bonds you have between two atoms, the shorter and stronger your bonds will be. So triple bonds are the shortest and strongest, and single bonds are the longest and weakest. Exact length to be used in calculations will most likely be given in the problem.

In general, bonding strength and length is proportional to one another. And bond length is always given by experiemental data.
