The two isomers are best distinguished from each other using...
Section 2.9 in the textbook introduced the idea of structural isomerism, with 1-propanol and 2-propanol as examples.
Determine which of these properties would distinguish these two substances:
(a) boiling point
(b) combustion analysis results
(c) molecular weight
(d) density at a given temperature and pressure
You can check on the properties of these two compounds in Wolfram Alpha (http:// www.wolframalpha.com/) or the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.
