BIS2A. Spring 2009. Comai Answers to study questions. Lecture 1 1. Consider each compound pair (look up the structure in wikipedia). Which one of the two has more energy on a molecule by molecule basis? Energy can be estimated by the bond type and number following the simple relation: C-H > C-O, O-H. Note that for each pair, R indicates the "rest of the molecule" and is the same. The under- lined compound has more energy pair compound 1 structure compound 2 structure a propane R-CH3 propanol R-CH2OH b propanol R-CH2OH propionic acid R-COOH c H2 H-H water H2O d methane CH4 carbon dioxide O=C=O e acetic acid R-COOH ethanol R-CH2OH 2. Next to each atom indicate the number of bonds that usually it forms when not charged atom bonds a H 1 b C 4 c O 2 d N 3 e P 5 3. Succintly explain why it would be difficult to power a vehicle from water, even if water can be split to produce H2 gas, a highly energetic compound that makes an ideal fuel.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
