VSPER and bond strength

Postby 305117729 » Sun Nov 11, 2018 2:06 pm

Are the repulsion between bond pairs influenced by the strength of those bond? do stronger bonds have greater repulsion?

From my understanding, VSEPR theory says that repulsion from the lone electron pair exhibits greater repulsion than a bonding pair. Additionally, when there are multiple bonds, they exhibit a greater repulsive force on near by electron areas than do single bonds.

Yes, stronger bonds have greater repulsion
