Hybridization and Bond Length

Postby Ashley R 1A » Sun Nov 24, 2019 10:02 pm

When orbitals hybridize we get sp, sp2, and sp3 hybridization. How does hybridization affect bond length?

An easy example to remember how bond length is affected by hybridization is this: the length of a sigma bond between a carbon atom and another atom is shorter for a carbon atom with a hybridization of sp2 than a carbon atom with a hybridization of sp3.
