It's also important to note that the real structure is usually a blend, or an average of all of its resonance structures. So for example, Dr. Lavelle used a nitrate ion, which has 3 resonance structures. But through experimental observation, each N-O bond has the same bond length, meaning that each N-O bond has partial double bond behavior. This is called a resonance hybrid.
