🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Bindell's class at UCF.
Which of the following diatomic molecules has the shortest bond length?
We are being asked to determine which of the given diatomic molecules has the shortest bond length.
• 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
• The bond strength also determines the distance between the atoms
