Explain why liquids, unlike gases, are virtually incompressible
Gen Chem 2 Notes: Week 2 Functional Groups: Specific combinations of atoms that react in a set way. These combinations determine the physical and chemical properties of molecules. They also determine polarity of molecules, for they may have dipoles. An R group is merely a Carbon or other organ atom bound to the carbon chain. These don’t matter in regards to functional groups. Alkene: A carbon double bonded to a carbon. Alkyne: A carbon triple bonded to a carbon. Alcohol: A carbon bound to an oxygen that is also bound to a hydrogen. The names for these have a –ol suffix Example: ethanol, methanol. Haloalkane: This is anywhere where just a halogen is bonded to a carbon.
