$P-H: \ estimated\ 1.38\ measured\ 1.419$ $As-H: \ estimated\ 1.50\ measured\ 1.519$ $Sb-H: \ estimated\ 1.70\ measured\ 1.707$

Work Step by Step

The figure shows the following atomic radii: H=0.31, P=1.07, As=1.19, Sb=1.39 The computed/estimated bond distances are therefore: $P-H: 1.07+0.31=1.38$ $As-H: 1.19+0.31=1.50$ $Sb-H: 1.39+0.31=1.70$
