Covalend bond formation

    its being said, " more the loss of energy, more the strength of the covalent bond"
    revered members,
    could u explain why?
    thanks in advance

    How would the amount of energy released when forming the bond relate to the energy needed to break the bond?

    Think about the conservation of energy. If forming a bond releases x amount of energy, the breaking that same bond must require the input of at least x amount of energy.
