Bond Strengths

Postby Kelly Cai 4D » Sat Nov 16, 2019 4:19 pm

Our textbook discussed how "bond strengths are approximately transferrable between molecules, so atomic radii are similar in whatever molecule they form."

What exactly does it mean when it highlights transferrable bond strengths and how does it relate to atomic radii?

I could be wrong but I interpreted this to mean that when atoms with similar atomic radii are bonded to the same atom they will have the same bond strength

If I'm not mistaken, I think it means that bonds between two of a particular type of atom are about the same strength - for example, the C-C bond in ethane has the same strength as a C-C bond in butane. Thus, bond strengths are (approximately) transferrable.

Bonds strengths are transferrable for the molecule with the same atoms.
