Problem

Is the nitrogen–oxygen bond in NO+ longer, shorter, or the same length as the nitrogen–oxygen bond in NO? Complete the explanation.

Solution

  •  The bond length between two atoms can be approximated using the atomic size and number of bonds formed between the atoms.

  •  The bigger the atomic size, the greater the distance between the two nuclei. This means the bond length is longer.
