WORKSHEET ON CONDENSED FORMULAS Write condensed formulas for the following bond-line formulas. Br OH OH Cl Indicate what is wrong with the following condensed formulas. Provide a correct formula. CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 Br CH 3 CH 3 CHCHCH 3 O CH 2 =CHCH 2 CH 2 CH 3 CH 3 CH CH 3 H 3 C CH 3 O CH 2 Note: there are a number of different ways to show the same condensed formula. One must be sure that whatever degree of abbrevation one uses, that the valence of each atom is correct (i.e. carbon should have 4 bonds, not 3 or 5; oxygen should have two bonds if there is no formal charge on the oxygen, etc.)
