How due to small size,the bond between C-C has high bond energy?please explain

Expert Answer:

The atomic no. of carbon is 6 so its electronic arrangement will be (1s2 2s2 2p2 )
that means in the outermost shell of carbon there are 4 electrons, its valency will be 4
When C-C bond forms it become strong because of the small size of carbon, and because of small size the effective nuclear charge on the electrons is more, hence to break this C-C bond we require more energy that's why its bond is high than other elements in rest of the group.
