				   can you explain the detail of isomerism in organic chemistry?

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


Dear koka,

The existence of two or more compounds with same molecular formula but different properties (physical, chemical or both) is known as isomerism; and the compounds themselves are called isomers. The term was given by Berzelius. The difference in properties of two isomers is due to the difference in the arrangement of atoms within their molecules.

Types of Isomerism

Isomerism may be classified into two types viz.,

  • Structural isomerism

  • Stereo isomerism

These are further classified into different classes as follows:

The molar volumes of ice and water are 0.0196 and 0.0180 litres per mole at 273K. If ΔH for the transition of ice to water is 1440 calories per mole at 1 atm pressure, find ΔU.
From eqn. ΔU + Δ(PV) ΔH = = ΔU + ΔPV + PΔV Given, 1440 = ΔU + 0.0196*273 + 0.0180*273 ΔU = 1440 – 10.2648 = 1429.73 calories.
