Bond Order

Postby Jimmy lira-1G » Mon May 21, 2018 8:47 pm

What equation do we use to find bond order, as it relates to bond length?

Like I know the higher the bond order the shorter the bond length

In class, it was mentioned the strength of a bond is measured by its dissociation energy which is the energy required to break the bonds. It ranges between a single, double or triple bond. The single bond is the longest and weakest while the triple bond is the shortest and strongest.
For example, N2 has a triple bond order connecting the atoms together

I think to find the bond order itself we would have to find the most stable Lewis structure to see what types of bonds are present in the given molecule.

Bond order formula

BO: (1/2)(number of bonds-number of anti bonds)

What exactly is an anti bond?
