Q. 11 A
C-Cl bond length in chlorobenzene is shorter than C-Cl bond length in
In the case of chlorobenzene, the C-Cl bond length is shorter because the C-Cl bond gets partial double bond character due to the +M effect shown by the Cl group. Due to the double bond nature of the bond, the bond length is less in case of chlorobenzene.
