An equilibrium C-H distance r, of 1.091±0.002 A has been calculated with the aid of a normal coordinate treatment from vibrational and rotational spectroscopic data on CH4 and CD4. From these results we also derive for the mean C-H distance, of interest in electron diffraction studies, the value 1.102±0.002 A.
