The reason for formation of strong bonds by carbon is its small size. This enables the nucleus to hold on the shared pair of electrons strongly. Why is it so?
Asked by Kumar Harshvardhan | 25th Oct, 2014, 11:05: AM
Due to small size of carbon , greater is the nuclear charge and greater is the force exerted by the nucleus on the electrons of the outermost orbit.
