All bond lengths we have been exposed to were given to us in the problem. Dr. Lavelle stated that these lengths were found through experimental data calculations and that we were specifically not going to get too in depth into that.
Bond strength and length will typically be given to you in the problem, on an information sheet, and certain ones might be required to be memorized. However, it's important to remember that triple bonds are stronger than double bonds, which are stronger than single bonds, and triple bonds are shorter than double bonds, which are shorter than single bonds.
The more bonds you have between two atoms, the shorter and stronger your bonds will be. So triple bonds are the shortest and strongest, and single bonds are the longest and weakest. Exact length to be used in calculations will most likely be given in the problem.
