8.8 Strengths of Covalent Bonds

The stronger a bond the more stable it is. If a molecule consists of extremely stable bonds then it will be more stable than a molecule consisting of weak bond. We discussed stability in Chapter 5 and we can relate bond strength to the enthalpy change of a chemical reaction by comparing the bonds broken in the reactants to the bonds formed in the products.
