bond lengths

Postby Savannah Mance 4G » Tue Nov 19, 2019 9:51 am

For tests are we supposed to memorize certain bond lengths or are they given to us in order to do the calculations?

I don't think we need to memorize bond lengths! Maybe just know that the order of increasing bond lengths is triple<double<single bonds

I also do not think that we need to memorize the exact bond lengths. We should at least know the relative bond lengths between single, double and triple bonds and the 1.5 bonds in resonance structures

I don’t think we need to know exact bond lengths. Probably just need to know what bond length is and which molecules have shorter or longer bonds

I don't think the specific bond lengths will need to be known. However, it is good to know that single bonds are the longest, then double bonds, then triple bonds.
