which of the following has weakest carbon-carbon strength?

a)alkyne b)alkene c)alkane

Alkyne has the weakest carbon-carbon bond strength because triple bond is made of two types of bond. One is single bond( sigma bond) while two are pi-bonds. These pi-bonds contribute to the weakening of strength of the Carbon-carbon bond.

alkane because no more carbons can be added in this chain whereas in alkanes & alkynes more carbon atoms can be added,,!!!!!

a)Alkyne. Since it has a triple bond, it's bond is quite unstable in itself; so, at the nearest oppurtunity it will try to convert into a more stabler existence, i.e. alkene or alkane. therefore the bond disorients itself pretty quicky in a reaction-making it very weak.

 alkyne. as it has triple bond it will undergo addition reaction to convert to saturated hydrocarbon. thus force between the carbon atoms is weak

simple it is alkyne
