Deep Potential Energy

Postby Kelly Cai 4D » Sat Nov 16, 2019 3:33 pm

In the textbook, it stated that a high dissociation energy is related to a deep potential energy and strong bonds. What is a deep potential energy?

Chemical bonds store potential energy, so the higher the potential energy of a chemical bond (determined by the stability of the molecule --> lower potential energy = more stable molecule), the greater the dissociation energy because it will take more energy to break a higher energy chemical bond.
