Dissociation Bond Length

Postby Katherine Brenner 3H » Fri Nov 22, 2019 4:08 pm

Will we ever be asked to calculate the dissociated bond length(it is inside textbook but I dont remember it from class)?

I don't remember him mentioning it on the syllabus or in class so I do not think so. If anything a number like this should be given.

I think the exact bond length and dissociation energy for a molecule is something that has to be experimentally determined. He might ask you to compare the bond lengths of certain molecules, but general rules concering atomic radii should be able to help you compare their lengths qualitatively.

I don't think so. However, we should know how to compare which molecule would have a higher dissociation energy.
