Which has the highest chemical bond energy.
A )ionic bond
B )single bond
D) triple bond
Solution: A bond energy describes a bond’s strength. This property shows how strongly each atom is bounded to another atom. Chemical bond energy is amount of energy is required to break a bond between two atoms. In case of covalent type of bonding, the bond energy between two atoms increases with the number of electron pairs in the bond increases. Thus, if we will look on the trend single – double – triple bond, the energy of triple bond will be higher. The energy of ionic bond determines by electrostatic attraction between positive and negative ions in chemical compound and usually names as lattice energy. To break the lattice require more energy, than to break the bond, that it why, we can conclude, that ionic bond energy is a highest energy from the list above. Answer: A) ionic bond
