CH3-H and CH3-CH3 conformations?

Why does the CH3-H eclipsed conformation have a lower potential energy than the CH3-CH3 eclipsed conformation?

H/W Q: 3.51- The Lewis stucture of HClO?

The question asks you to draw two possible Lewis structures of HClO and determine which one is the most likely structure. One is in this form : H--Cl--O The other is in this form: H--O--Cl I don't understand why the second one would even be a valid Lewis structure (and why HClO would have two Lewis ...

Re: Ionic Character and Covalent Character in bonds

The degree of ionic/covalent character is related to atoms in the compound. More specifically, it is to do with the polarising power or polarisability. For cations, it is to do with the polarising power. Cations with a higher charge density (small ionic radius and high charge) will have a greater po...
