To determine bond length, you would have to be given experimentally derived atomic radius. The bond length of a bond would be the radius of both atoms totaled up. This would be the internuclear distance and the length of the bond.
Hello! In order to detemrine the bond length we would have to consider the atomic radius. Utilizing the atomic radius, we would total the radius of the atoms up. If the bond in question is a covalent bond we would both the radius of the covalent bond and we would do the same for an ionic bond.
The length of the bond can be determined by the number of bonded electrons (i.e. the bond order). The higher the bond order, the stronger the pull between the two atoms and the shorter the bond length. The length of the bond between two atoms can also be thought of as the sum of the covalent radii of the two atoms.
