Bond strength

Postby salvadorramos3k » Sun Nov 10, 2019 4:23 pm

Bond strength is determined by the bond number right? Like a double bond is stronger than a single bond? Or what determines the strength of bonds?

Hello, when talking about single bonds, a greater difference in electronegativity is directly related to the strength in bonds. But, as you said, a double bond is stronger than a single bond, and thus, a triple bond is stronger than a double bond due to increased attraction between each atom.

It also has to do with size. Larger atoms results in longer bond length and a weaker bond.

Yes, single bonds are the weakest and longest, triple bonds are the shortest and strongest. Also, atomic radius comes into play. Smaller atoms tend to be closer and more strongly held together.
