Bond Order

The smaller the value of a bond order the stringer it is right? Or is it the one with the lower number for the bond order is stronger?

I think it is the larger the BO, the shorter the bond length meaning the bond is strong. So, if the BO is small the bond length is big and therefore the bond is weak.

Hi! It's actually the higher the bond order the stronger the bond. So a bond order of three is stronger than a bond order of 1 because a triple bond is shorter and stronger than a single bond!
