Double bonds are shorter in length than single bonds because double bonds are stronger than single bonds. Likewise, triple bonds are stronger than double bonds, which means that the length of the triple bond would be shorter.
Double bonds appear shorter than a single bond because there is a stronger attraction between electrons with a double bond since there are more electrons. The stronger attraction between the two elements draws in the elements closer to one another. The same applies for a triple bond.
