Chem 210 Training Set I Page 1 of 17 Organic Chemistry: Chem 210 Training Set I The questions are arranged approximately in the order of the coverage of material in the lecture. This set covers the material of the first exam. 1. A σ bond is made by the overlap of an sp 2 hybrid with an s orbital as shown below. What is the best graphical representation of the σ bond that forms at the same time? 2 . Which of the following compounds has the shortest C-H bond? 3 . Which of the following statements about sp 2 orbitals is not true ? a) they are always present as a set of three sp 2 orbitals b) they are usually used to form σ bonds (sometimes lone pairs) c) they are 33% s d) the ideal angle between two sp 2 orbitals is 120° f) e) d) c) b) a) σ bond

Chem 210 Training Set I Page 2 of 17 4 . In a hypothetical molecule, a four-bonded carbon atom uses one sp and two sp 5 hybrids to make three of its bonds. What is the remaining hybrid that is used to make the fourth bond? a) pure s e) sp 3 b) pure p f) sp 4 c ) s p g ) s p 5 d) sp 2 h ) s p 6 5 . What are the hybridizations of the two oxygens in the acetate anion (CH 3 CO 2 )? a) both sp 3 b) both sp 2 c) both sp 2.5 d) one sp 2 and one sp 3 6. Ammonia undergoes a rapid “flip”, wherein the hydrogens move from one side of the nitrogen atom to the other (like an umbrella in the wind), as shown in the diagram below. At the lowest energy points, the lone electron pair on nitrogen resides in an sp 2.1 hybrid, but during the flip the hybridization of nitrogen changes continuously to finally reach the hybridization of the starting point again. What is the orbital that the lone pair resides in at the highest energy point during that transformation? a) s b) p c) sp d) sp 2 e) sp 3 f) sp 4 g) sp 5 h) π 7. Let’s assume that the H-P-H bond angle in PH 3 is 90 o (it really is 92 o ). What is the nature of the orbital holding the lone electron pair? a) sp 3 hybrid d) pure s b) sp 2 hybrid e) pure p c) sp hybrid f) intermediate between sp 3 and sp 2 N H H H N H H H N H H H (all atoms are in one plane) Energy

O CO CH 3 CN CO 2 OH I II III IV V VI a) I, II, IV, VI b) II, III, IV, VI c) III, V, VI d) III, IV, VI 9. Which molecules have at least one atom that is sp 2 hybridized? A: + CH 2 CH 3 F: CO B: CH 3 OCH 3 G: OCHCH 3 C: CH 2 CCH 2 H: CH 3 CN D: CH 3 CCH I: CH 3 NH 2 E : CH 2 CHCH 3 a) A and C e ) B , D , and H b) F and H f ) B , C , F , and G c) B and I g ) C , D , F , and H d) A , G , and I h ) A , C , E , and G 10 . In the methyl anion ( CH 3 ), the H-C-H bond angle is 106.6 o (–1/cos(106.6 o ) = 3.5). What is the hybridization index of the orbital holding the lone electron pair? a) 3.0 b) 2.7 c) 2.3 d) 2.0 e) 1.8 11 . In 1-bromo-3-chloro-1,2-propadiene (BrHC=C=CHCl) each terminal carbon is bonded to halogen and hydrogen atoms. Excluding the central carbon, what is the relative position of the terminal Br-C-H and Cl-C-H groups?
