Dino Nugget Mini review

Postby derinceltik1K » Sun Nov 03, 2019 9:30 pm

a) Comment on the relative bond strength and length of the C–O bond in carbon dioxide, CO​2,​ and H, CH​3O​ H.

How would we solve it ?

In order to solve this problem, you must understand the relationship between number of bonds and how that corresponds to strength and length.
A single bond is weaker than double or triple bonds because there are fewer electrons being shared and thus a weaker attraction to the positively-charged nuclei of the atoms that are sharing the electrons. It is because of this weaker force of attraction that the length of the bond is longest.
A double bond is stronger because there are more electrons being shared (4), which exert a stronger attractive force towards the nuclei. The atoms are thus closer together because of the attraction, making the bond length shorter.
A triple bond is strongest because it has the highest amount of electrons being shared and thus the strongest force of attraction. Following the logic I have applied for the past two types of bonds, the bond length is shortest because of the strong force of attraction.
