For resonance structures, is the bond length an average of the experimental bond lengths because of delocalization?

Yes, the resonance bond length is the average length, but not exactly because of delocalization.

kind of yeah? i see it more as resonance describing the delocalization of electrons. but yes the bond length is the average
