Bond Order and Bond Stability

Postby Charlene Tang 1B » Fri Oct 30, 2015 10:40 am

Does a higher bond order mean that the molecule is more stable?

A strong bond = higher bond order
Therefore, a high bond order is more stable

A higher bond order is generally lower in energy than a lower bond order.

does bond order also correspond with bond strength?

Usually a bond order is how much bonds a molecule has. A molecule with a triple bond will have a bond order of 3. We all know that more bonds equal more bond strength. So you can basically assume that more bond order equals stronger bonds.
