Does anyone here know what the radius of a benzene molecule is?

The distance between C1 and C4 is about 3.8 A. by my calculations. If you want to check that, the C-C bond length is 1.397 A.

oops. Had a typo. "3.8" should be "2.8" Hope that didn't result in an explosion or somethin'.

Thanks dude. I was just messing around with the Schrödinger equation and I wanted to see if a 1-D ring approximation gave a near-accurate answer for lowest energy absorption in a benzene ring.
