Expert Answer

Step 1

The amount of energy is needed to break the bond between the atoms in the molecules is known as the bond energy.

Step 2

In the organic reaction, the breaking of the old bond and formation of the new bonds will occur. The weaker bond has lower bond energy while strong bond has higher bond energy. The organic reaction will occur very fast if the bond that has lower bond energy. Thus, the weaker s...
