Question

# In alkanes, $$C-H$$ bond is stronger than $$C-C$$ bond.

A
True
B
False

Solution

## The correct option is A TrueOrder of strength of overlapping: $$\mathrm{s-s >s-p>p-p}$$Overlapping in case of $$\mathrm{C-H}$$ bond is $$\mathrm{s-p}$$ whereas in case of $$\mathrm{C-C}$$ bond is $$\mathrm{p-p}$$. So, $$\mathrm{C-H}$$ bond is stronger than $$\mathrm{C-C}$$ bond.Hence, the given statement is True.Chemistry
