Normally you can just use the atomic radius between two bonding atoms to find the bond length, but once you get into double and triple bond territory, the attractive forces increase and bond length decreases. In resonant structures, the bond length is somewhere between the bond lengths of all the bonds because of the partial bond characteristics.
Bond length is dependent on the type of bond, whether it is a single bond, double bond, or triple bond. Then if each molecule has resonance the bond lengths will be in between the lengths of the two different bonds. We have not been taught how to specifically find the exact value of the bond length.
