When we consider a bond between two atoms, the type of bond gives a relative measure of the bond length.

Triple Bond Strongest, 3 electron pairs shared, shortest bond
Double Bond Middle, 2 electron pairs shared
Single Bond Weakest, 1 electron pair shared, longest bond


We need to determine the bond types for each molecule or ion:

CO, When drawing the lewis structure here, we end up with a triple bond between the carbon and the oxygen (and a -1 charge on the C and a +1 charge on the O)

CO2 This lewis structure gives one double bond between each oxygen and the carbon.

[CO3]2- This one is a little trickier, but when we draw the lewis structure for this ion, we get a double bond between one oxygen and the carbon, with single bonds between the other two oxygen atoms and the carbon. Because each of the oxygens want a double bond to the carbon, they all fight over it (giving resonance structures), meaning that in the end, you get a bond something between a double and a single bond for each Carbon-Oxygen bond. Therefore, this bond will be longer than a single bond, but shorter than a double bond:

So, this give the following increasing order of bond length:

[CO3]2-, CO2, CO

At 80˚C, distilled water has [H 3 O + ] concentration equal to 1 × 10 6 mole/litre. The valus of kW at this temperature will be (a) 1 × 10 -6 (b) 1 × 10 -9 (c) 1 × 10 -12 (d) 1 × 10 -15
 
 
since it is distilled water, [H 3 O + ] concentration = [OH - ] concentration K w = [H 3 O + ] 2 approve if helpful

At a given temperature a saturated aqueous solution of KI 127 is prepared and then solid radioactive KI 131 is added. Comment whether the solution will become radioactive or not and why.
 
 
the solution will become radioactive because I 131 is not stable isotope. So unstable nuclei is radioactive..........................................................
