Establish the relationship of bond energy, length, and number of bonds and determine which decreases with the number of bonds between to Cs
• 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
▪ higher bond energy → higher bond strength
As the number of bonds between two carbon atoms increases, which one of the following decreases?
A. number of electrons between the carbon atoms
B. bond energy
C. bond length
D. all of these
E. none of these
