Approaching Organic Chemistry Problems in the Textbook

Postby AnkitaNair1E » Thu Feb 23, 2017 9:04 pm

As a first time learner of Organic Chemistry, I had some difficulty attempting to solve problems 1-10 in chapter four. Often times, the problems expect you to know organic chemistry terminology we haven't really discussed in class. For example, Question 4.1 A parts B and C ask us to give the hybridization, geometry, and shape of an alkyl and aryl carbanion. What is the best way to approach and solve these problems? Is it recommended we read the previous chapters of the organic chemistry textbook?

For now do the Chapter 4 questions that relate directly to organic reaction mechanisms.

After we have done Chapters 1 and 2, then tackle the problems involving structure.

Yes, this is a good time to review Lewis structures, shape, and hybridization (using organic examples) from Chem 14A.
