calculating bond length

Postby tatianatumbling_1J » Fri May 18, 2018 6:18 pm

Hi. I was gone Wednesday and I was able to review someone's notes but I'm confused on how we calculate bond length. I saw that we need the dissociation energy, but are we always given bond lengths? how do we calculate it?

I believe we just need to know that single bonds would have a longer bond length compared to double and triple bonds. The bond length also corresponds to bond strength.

I don't believe we need to know how to calculate bond length, I think the important thing to remember is that single bonds are the longest and weakest, while triple bonds are the shortest and strongest.

To add on Lavelle mentioned in class that the values he got for bond length were looked up online. He does not expect us to know how to calculate bond length, that is why he didn't give us an equation on how to solve for this. The main thing we need to take away from this is that single bonds have a longer length compared to triple bonds.
