Change ethane into 1,2-ethanediol (HOCH2CH2OH) by removing one hydrogen atom from each
carbon atom and replacing with a hydroxide (-OH) group.
3. Draw a Lewis structure for 1,2-ethanediol.
4. Build a model of the 1,2-ethanediol molecule.
a. Identify the electron-pair and molecular geometry around each carbon and oxygen
b. What are the bond angles for H-C-H? For H-C-C? For C-C-O? For C-O-H?
Monteyne, Chemistry by Inquiry Fall 2009, Activity B.6

Top Answer

The C-O-H is in a bent geometry (around 104.5 angle.) The C-C-O is in a tetrahedral geometry. (angle of109.5) The H-C-H bond... View the full answer
