In addition, when looking at the molecule and bonding geometrically, pi bonds are formed between atoms that are closer in distance. Also, the shorter the bond, the stronger the bond, so you can think of it that way when determining which is the longest and shortest.
Single > double > triple bonds. My thought process is that since double and triple bonds have pi bonds, which are overlap/side-to-side orbital interactions the bonds have to be closer than a single.
