Learning Objectives and Reading CHM 11500 Fa09 Lecture 14, and 15 READING: Sections 10.1 (pp. 442-447), 10.2 (pp. 447-450), 10.3 (pp. 461-462, 466- 468), 10.4 (pp. 468-472). Concepts to Understand Oil provides our society with a vast amount of resources besides just gasoline. Identify hydrocarbons and describe how they are important when considering the composition of oil The geometries about the carbon atoms in alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes Why some objects and substances are colored, whereas others are not Absorption of light in the UV and IR regions of the spectrum can be just as characteristic as visible absorption Identify the region of the electromagnetic spectrum where electronic transitions are excited in a molecule Identify the region of the electromagnetic spectrum where vibrational transitions
