(3) Convert the following names into the corresponding molecular structures. After doing so, check to see if the name of each molecule as given here is in accord with the IUPAC system of nomenclature. It not, name the molecule correctly. (i) 5-(1,1-dimethylpropyl)nonane Nmme.

(a) Circle the molecule that is the stranger acid and explain your choice based on the factors discussed in class. Again, you need an explanation of why your choice is the stronger acid, in addition to listing the pKa'values.

While you should pay attention to the relative levels between the difi‘erent maxima and minima, you do not need to estimate activation energies. (Hint: Identifying the number of high energy interactions such as eclipsed and gauche will help you determine the relative energies of each conformation.) BE NEAT! ch 0H Torsional angle 5.
