(a)
The energy of Xrays is greater than that of any visible light, including blue light. (In fact, the energy is so
much greater that prolonged exposure to Xrays is harmful.)

(b)
Apply Eq. 12.7b on text p. 541:
12.6
Using Eq. 12.8 on text p. 541, convert the wavenumber to a frequency, which is the “times per second” equivalent of
wavelength or wavenumber.

Take the ratio of two equations like Eq. 12.13 on text p. 547, one for the C—H bond, and the other for the C—D
bond. Everything cancels except the wavenumbers and the square roots of the masses.

In fact, C—D vibrations appear in the IR at lower energy than the corresponding C—H vibrations (to the right in
conventional IR spectra).

(b)
Active. The C
A
O dipole is increased by the stretch because its length changes. Recall (Eq. 1.4, text p. 11)
that dipole moment is proportional to length.
(d)
Inactive. The zero dipole moment of this alkyne is not changed by stretching the triple bond.

(f)
Active. The dipole moment of the molecule is due mostly to the bond dipole of the C—Cl bond, which is the
only bond in the molecule with significant polarity. Increasing the length of this bond dipole will increase the
dipole moment of the molecule.

The carbon skeleton of the hydrogenation product defines the following alkenes as possibilities.
The strong 912 and 994 cm
–1
C—H bending absorptions are very close to the standard values of 910 and 990 cm
–1
,
which are typical of —CH

groups. Therefore compound
A
is
(5)
. The weak or absent C
A
C stretching
absorption in the 1660–1670 cm

region suggest that the candidates for
B
,
C
, and
E
are compounds
(2)
,
(3)
, and
(4)
.
The strong 967 cm
–1
C—H bending absorption is the definitive absorption for trans alkenes. Therefore, compound
E
is
(3)
. Compound
C
must be the cis alkene
(4),
from the C—H bending absorption at 714 cm
–1
, because the C—H
bending absorption for cis alkenes occurs at lower wavenumber than the C—H bending absorption of other alkene
types. The 1650 cm

C
A
C stretching absorption as well as the 885 cm

C—H bending absorption point to

as
the structure of compound
D.
This leaves only compound
B
unassigned, and it must therefore have structure
