Describe how covalent and ionic bonds differ with regard to bond strength and how is bond length related to stability ane energy?

  • Chemistry -

    Most ionic bonds are stronger than most covalent bonds. The bond length:
    It takes less energy to break a long bond than a short bond (short bonds are stronger than long bonds). Wouldn't stability correlate with bond length?
