A new compound is made that has a carbon-carbon bond length of 1.15 Å. Is this bond likely to be a single, double, or triple carbon-carbon bond?
We have to determine the likely bond type of a carbon-carbon bond based on its wavelength.
The bond length of a bond is dependent upon various factors such as:
Atomic radii of the atoms forming the bond
Polarity of the bond
Type of the covalent bond
We will remain focused on the type of covalent bond.
