Textbook Problem

Consider a series of molecules in which carbon is attached by single covalent bonds to atoms of second-period elements: C—O, C—F, C—N, C—C, and C—B. Place these bonds in order of increasing bond length.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The given molecules should be arranged in order of increasing bond length.

Concept Introduction:

Bond length: Bond distance or bond length is the average distance between nuclei of two bonded atoms in a molecule.

Electronegativity: It is the ability of atom to attract lone pair of electrons towards itself in a molecule

Explanation

The bond between carbon and other element in a period follows the general trend that it decreases as we go from left to right of period in a periodic table.

Therefore, the bonds in order of increasing bond length is
