( c ) The molecular formula C 3 H 4 is satis f ed by the structures 1.38 ( a ) The only atomic arrangements of C 3 H 6 O that contain only single bonds must have a ring as part of their structure. ( b ) Structures corresponding to C 3 H 6 O are possible in noncyclic compounds if they contain a carbon carbon or carbon oxygen double bond. 1.39 The direction of a bond dipole is governed by the electronegativity of the atoms it connects. In each of the parts to this problem, the more electronegative atom is partially negative and the less elec- tronegative atom is partially positive. Electronegativities of the elements are given in Table 1.2 of the text. ( a ) Chlorine is more electronegative ( d ) Oxygen is more electronegative than than hydrogen. hydrogen. ( b ) Chlorine is more electronegative ( e ) Oxygen is more electronegative than than iodine. either hydrogen or chlorine. ( c ) Iodine is more electronegative than hydrogen. 1.40 The direction of a bond dipole is governed by the electronegativity of the atoms involved. Among
