Prachi Shah Honors Organic Chemistry I Project II [1.1.1] Bicyclopentane, C5H8 Angle Description (Carbon atoms involved) Angle measurement (Degrees) C2 C1 C5 (Bridgehead carbon) 85.31° C2 C1 C4 (Bridgehead carbon) 85.31° C5 C1 C4 (Bridgehead carbon) 85.31° C2 C3 C4 (Bridgehead carbon) 85.31° C2 C3 C5 (Bridgehead carbon) 85.31° C5 C3 C4 (Bridgehead carbon) 85.31° C1 C2 C3 (Non-bridgehead carbon) 77.03° C1 C5 C3 (Non-bridgehead carbon) 77.03° C1 C4 C3 (Non-bridgehead carbon) 77.03° The molecule above is [1.1.1] bicyclopentane. In general, it is said that if a carbon is bonded to four other atoms, it is a sp3 hybridized carbon. There are many factors in our results that support this theory. In a five membered carbon ring, a carbon in the sp3 hybridized form has a carbon-carbon bond length of 1.54. In our case, the carbon carbon bond was measured to be 1.5469 A, which is very close to the theoretical value. When comparing bond angles, the C-C-C bond angle must be approximately 90 degrees to be
