Compared to a C=C double bond, a C-C single bond has _____ bond order, _____ bond length, and ______ bond energy.
a. lower, longer, less
b. lower, shorter, less
c. higher, shorter, greater
d. lower, longer, greater
e. higher, longer, less
Establish the relationship of bond order, energy and length and fill up the blanks in the problem
• The bond energy determines the strength of the bond in a compound.
▪ the higher the bond energy, the higher is the energy required to break up the molecule/compound into its individual atoms
