The carbons of CH2=CH and CO have sp2-hybridization.
The carbons of CH3 have sp3-hybridization.
The distances of C(sp3)-C(sp3) bonds are around of 154 pm.
The distances of C(sp3)-C(sp2) bonds are around of 150 pm.
The distances of C(sp2)-C(sp2) bonds are around of 147 pm.
The distances of C(sp2)-H bonds are around of 109 pm.
The distances of C(sp3)-H bonds are around of 110 pm.
