Requirements

The distance between two atoms that have the potential to form a bond affects the forces felt between the atoms, the energy state of the two-atom system, and the distribution of electrons around the atoms’ nuclei. Change the distance between the atoms to see the relationship between these factors. What do you notice about all of these things when the atoms have bonded and are at the typical bond length distance from each other for those atom types?

NGSS Standards

HS-PS1-4. Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.

HS-PS3-5. Develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.
