Results and Discussion: A computer program Spartan was used to design an organic molecule (medicine) that best fit a given receptor site. But before this was actually done, the program was tested by drawing molecules and observing them on the program. First the NH 3 molecule’s structure was drawn and optimized on the program. The program calculated the bond lengths, angles, partial charges, and molecular polarity. The following table shows the results. Table 1: NH 3 Molecule N-H bond lengths (angstroms) H-H bond lengths (angstroms ) H-N-H angles Bond Angles (degrees) Dipole Magnitude (D) Partial Charges NH 3 1.019 1.628 106.23 1.92 towards the lone pair electrons) N (-1.087) H (0.361) H (0.361) H (0.364) The following is drawing of the molecule: The molecules for SF 4 , CHCl 3, PF 5, SO 3 2- were drawn on the program in the same fashion. The results from Spartan are listed in the next table.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
