Are all the five bonds of PCl5 equivalent? Justify your answer.

PCl5 has Sp3d hybridisation and trigonal bipiramidal geometry. PCl5 has three equivalent equatorial and two equivalent axial P – Cl bonds. However, due to greater bond pair – bond pair repulsions, the axial P – Cl bonds are longer and hence different from the three equatorial bonds
