Solution: Write the molecular and structural formulas for the compounds represented by the molecular models in the figure .Write the structural formula for the compound (b).

Problem

Write the molecular and structural formulas for the compounds represented by the molecular models in the figure (a) A carbon atom is single bonded to 3 hydrogen atoms and to oxygen. Oxygen is single bonded to a second carbon atom that is also single bonded to 3 H atoms. (b) Two carbon atoms are joined by a single bond. The left carbon is single bonded to three Hs and the right is single bonded to two Hs and an OH. (c) CH3 is bonded to OH. (d) P is bonded to 3 Fs..

Write the structural formula for the compound (b).
