Question #54540
in HF the experimental bond length value is less than the sum of covalent radii?
Expert's answer
The experimental bond length for HF was found to be 0.917 angstroms on the NIST website. http://www.uwosh.edu/faculty_staff/gutow/Chem_371_S09/SNRE%20Webpage/HF%20Calculations/HF%20Calculations.html
The sum of covalent radii 73pm. R=73*10^-12 m = 7.2*10^-11 m.
So, in HF the experimental bond length value is less than the sum of covalent radii.
