1. You drew Lewis structures for these molecules in the previous assignment. You may wish to draw them again. What is the hybridization at: a) the central nitrogen in N 2 O? sp 3 sp 2 sp b) the carbon in HCN? sp 2 sp sp 3 c) the oxygen in OF 2 ? sp 2 sp sp 3 2. Consider the structure of capsaicin, the molecule responsible for the "heat" of chili peppers: This is also shown in exercise 18 on page 129 of the print textbook. Please note lone pairs have been left off the structure. You will need to consider them in order to answer this question correctly. What are the approximate bond angles at the following atoms? Note: is the C-O-C angle in the upper left corner of the drawing. = 109 = 120 = 109 = 120 = 109 3. In the structure of capsaicin shown in the question above, what is the bond order at each of the following bonds? Please note that resonance structures must be taken into account to answer this question correctly. Bond W 1.5 Bond X 1.5 Bond Y 1 Bond Z 2 4. You will need to consult the structure of acetaminophen (Tylenol) shown below:

    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.
