When it comes to bond lengths we need to know that single bonds are longer and weaker than single and triple bonds. When it comes to resonance we know that the electrons are delocalized causing partial bonds. So a compound can have both single and double bond characteristics.

Bond length also affects the dissociation energy, or the energy required to break a bond. Single bonds require less energy to break than double or triple bonds.
