Re: Assigning priority and naming the compound error? pg17

cis/trans only applies for same group, for example, 2 H on 2 sides, 2 CH3 on 2 sides... We are comparing two groups that are out of the page or into the page. In other words, in this case, you would have to compared the relative position of groups on the left and right side of the compound. I seem ...

Pseudo Rate Laws

in the course reader it says that if one reactant concentration is small and the rest are big then it only relies on the small concentration reaction. How much smaller does the reactant have to be to only use one reactant instead of all?
