Longer bonds are weaker and shorter bonds are stronger. Single bonds are the longest so they are the weakest; triple bonds are the shortest so they are the strongest. Double bonds are in the middle with both length and strength.

In terms of bonds in molecules, strongest to weakest is: covalent, ionic, hydrogen, dipole-dipole, london dispersion forces.

Weakest to strongest in terms of interaction type:
LDF/Van der Waals, dipole-dipole, hydrogen, ionic, covalent

Weakest to strongest in terms of bond type:
single, double, triple

Intramolecular forces/bonds will always be stronger than intermolecular forces. For intramolecular forces, a good way to remember covalent bond is the strongest is to think that they are sharing electrons.

In order of strongest to weakest bonds: ionic bonds, covalent bonds, hydrogen bonds, van der waals.

Stronger bonds are shorter bonds. Triple bonds are shorter than double bonds which are shorter than single bonds. Also, bonds between smaller elements tend to be slightly stronger.

The strongest to weakest bonds in molecules are covalent, ionic, hydrogen, and then dipole-dipole.

In some compounds (such as water), molecules are attracted to each other with London dispersion forces, meaning that the electrons in the valence shell of the compound are attracted to the nuclei of the atoms of the other molecule. These forces are some of the weakest out of all of the bonding forces because no real bonds are actually formed.

Bonds are stronger when they are shorter and have a higher bond order too.

the C to O triple bond is specifically one of the strongest bonds between atoms. it is one of the shortest bonds at 113pm and has the highest bond energy at 1072 KJ/mol.

In increasing strength:
Single bonds < Double bonds < Triple bonds.

In terms of single/double/triple bonds, the strongest and shortest would be triple bonds and decreases in strength and increases in length with single bonds being the longest and weakest.

For intermolecular forces:
LDF/Van der Waals < dipole-dipole < h-bonds (the strongest type of dipole-dipole attraction)

Van der waals interaction < hydrogen bond < covalent bond < ionic bond
