formula of no.of possibule isomers in alkans

4 years ago


Answers : (1)


There donot exist a formula for counting chainisomers. However for quick remembring u can use the following concept for first 9 alkanes

For each consequetive memeber , the no of chain isomers is of  2n-1 where n is the no of isomers of preceding member

Carbon atoms - Isomers

4 - 2 (Buane has 2 isomers)

5 - 3 (2*2-1)

6 - 5 (2*3-1)

7 - 9 (2*5-1)

8 - 18 (exception 2*9)

9 - 35 (2*18-1)

The molar volumes of ice and water are 0.0196 and 0.0190 litres per mole at 273K. If ΔHefor the transition of ice to water is 1440 calories per mole at 1 atm pressure, find ΔU.
Since heat is absorbed here at constant pressure so ΔH = 1440 calories ΔU can be calculated by using the formula : ΔU=ΔH-PΔV P= 1atm, ΔV = 0.0196L - 0.180L = 0.0016 L PΔV = 1*0.0016=...
