Problem 15

Rank the following in order of increasing surface tension (at room temperature): (a) (b) (c)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Transition state structures can also be written as: *NOTE:the energies ofA,B,C,D,E,F,and G can change based on bonds Degrees of freedom for a nonlinear molecule 3 (N) - 6 N=number of atoms Ex.Butane C4H10 3 (14) - 6 = 36 Strain 1.Torsional strain=destabilization that results when vicinal pairs of bonds are eclipsed 2.van derWaals strain=steric hindrance,when electron clouds of groups are too close and collide 3.Angle strain=Baeyer strain,when the interorbital angle differs significantly from the internuclear angle 4.Bond-length distortion=destabilization that results in bond lengths that are forced to be different from normal values -to reduce angle and torsional strain,the shape of the cylcoalkane is n
