Skills for Exam I, the Final Exam, and the Rest of the Year You should: 1. Be able to use the localized bonding model to draw molecular structures, assign formal charges and show resonance stabilization, as well as to explain important parameters of molecular structure such as bond angles, dipole moments, bond lengths, bond strengths, and overall molecular geometry. 2. Be able to use the hybridization model to predict and explain bonding and important parameters of molecular structure, especially bond angles. 3. Be able to write and interpret the various condensed structures and projections used to represent organic compounds. 4. Be able to identify and estimate relative strengths of acids and bases and of electrophiles and nucleophiles. 5. Be able to calculate thermodynamic parameters from data and explain chemical and physical behavior by reference to ΔH, ΔS, and ΔG, as
