What are the strongest to weakest bonds?
What Are The Strongest To Weakest Bonds What are the strongest to weakest bonds? Of the 4 different types of chemical bonds, covalent bonds are known to be the strongest and the bonds formed via Van der Waals forces are known to be the weakest. The ranking is: Covalent bond ionic bond hydrogen bond Van der Waals forces.
What is a chemical bond?
A Chemical bond is technically a bond between two atoms that results in the formation of a molecule , unit formula or polyatomic ion. The weakest of the intramolecular bonds or chemical bonds is the ionic bond. next the polar covalent bond and the strongest the non polar covalent bond.
Which intermolecular bond is the strongest and why?
The next in the line would be the polar covalent bond and the strongest would be the non polar covalent bond. Now we can say that there are even weaker intermolecular bonds or more correctly forces.
Is a hydrogen bond a chemical or physical force?
The Hydrogen Bond is not actually a chemical but an intermolecular force or attraction. Other intermolecular forces are the Van der Walls interactions and the dipole dipole attractions. The ionic bond is generally the weakest of the true chemical bonds that bind atoms to atoms.
