Chemical Bonds

Why do double bonds appear to be shorter than a single bond?

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 and triple bonds have more electrons, so they exert a stronger attractive force on the nuclei of the bonding atoms, which pulls the atoms closer together and leads to shorter bond lengths

Double bonds are shorter than single bonds because they have a stronger force and therefore hold each other closer.

There is a stronger attraction that arises from a greater number of electrons and attractive force exerted by the nuclei which would in turn decrease the bond length.

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.

Because the molecular force is stronger with a double bond, basically like the atoms are held tighter

As the number of bonds increase between atoms, the pull between them also becomes stronger and they're drawn closer together. This results in a shorter bond length between the two atoms.

Double bonds are stronger than single bonds, so it pulls atoms closer together

Double bonds are shorter than single bonds because they are stronger, so the electrons are closer together than in a single bond.

Double bonds are shorter because there are two bonds pulling on two particles rather than just one, making the bond (combined) stronger than a single

Double bonds have more electrons than single bonds so they exert more force on the nucleus which pulls atoms closer together and makes the bond shorter.
