Problem E14D.2(b)

A one-dimensional polymer chain consists of 1200 segments, each 1.125nm long. If the chain were ideally flexible, what would be the rootmean-square separation of the ends of the chain?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

January 23 rd Atoms and molecules adopt shapes that maximize the distance between valence electron pairs. Ex: Methane (CH ) 4 - For 4 electron pairs, maximal distance occurs as a tetrahedral shape. - All bond angles in this shape are 109.5 degrees. But about the orbitals involved in bonding We use planes to show how electrons move around. However, if electrons bonded strictly to these orbitals, it would not result in a tetrahedral shape. Therefore, the orbitals are combined, or hybridized. Formulas and Isomerism There are different ways of showing the same compound or molecule. Each type has its own pros and cons. Isomerism: “The same yet not the same.” Molecules with the same formula can have different structures which change their properties. Structural/constitutional isomers: Have the same molecular formula but different atom connectivity. Dash Structural Formula: Every atom and bond in a molecule are shown. This is very clear but takes up space and time. This shows the three isomers of the molecule C H 0. E3c8 molecule has the same number of each atom, but the atoms are connected in different ways. This effects properties such as boiling/melting point and reactivity. Condensed Structural Formula: Everything attached to an atom is drawn after it with no bonds shown. T
