Determine the Lewis structure of each compound and rank the given bonds according to strenght.
↑ Bond strength , ↓ Bond Lenght.
The bond length can be determined by the type of bond between the atoms
▪ single bond (–X–X–) → longest bond length
For each set below rank the bonds according to strength.
A) Cl–Cl, I–I, Br–Br
B) Si–F, Si–I, Si–Cl
