Any carbon atom, which is attached to a carbon, which is linked with another carbon atom via double bond is called vinylic carbon.

On a carbon skeleton, sp2-hybridized carbons or positions are often called vinylic.

For example: In the given compound, carbon at number 3 is known as vinylic carbon, because it is bonded to double bonded carbon atom.

1  2  3


Hope it helps!
