Ch. 13 Problems
Kathleen Kristian
Chem 1403
Fall 2008
Ch. 13 and Ch. 14 are about molecular structure and bonding.
This is a
challenging topic and you should apply yourself to studying and doing the
problems accordingly.
Aside from conceptual understanding, there are some
skills you should master.
By the time we finish Ch. 13, you should be able to:
•
Draw a Lewis structure (this includes calculating the formal charge on
each atom; indicating the formal charges using conventional notation; and
drawing all of the resonance structures when necessary)
•
Predict the molecular geometry based on a Lewis structure.
This requires
that you memorize Tables 13.8, 13.9, and 13.10 or the table in my notes for
this week (including the bond angles in the common molecular
geometries).
•
Draw a molecule in its appropriate 3D geometry using conventional
notation.
•
Draw bond dipoles on a molecule using conventional notation and sum
them to determine if there is a net dipole moment for the molecule.
Here are some problems pertaining to Ch. 13 material to get you started.
