15. Which statement A-D about chemical bonds is atic potential energy goes through a minimum. minimum occurs is called the bond length. d. As two atoms come togcther, the electrostatic po The distance between the atoms at which thns two atoms inti energy together at a distance that minimizes the elecpositively b. The bond energy is the energy released when twochearged nuci occurs is ca een the atoms at which this ergy released when two atoms infinitely far a stance that minimizes the electrostatic potentia d. ectrostatic ely charged electrons to the positively charged nuc The repulsion of the negatively charged cle energy to decrease as two atoms come together. when negatively charged electrons with each other and the positively the two atoms are very close together other causes the electrostatic potential energy to increase e. Statements A-D are all correct at 70.0Â°C is Solution Ans is C. Because when two atoms close together potential energy is extremely high due to increase in repulsion between electrons. .
