Bond Enthalpy Method for Complex molecules

Postby cassidysong 1K » Mon Feb 10, 2020 8:34 pm

Will we provided with the molecular structure of more complex molecules or are we expected to be able to deduce them? I am struggling to write the lewis structure for some of the more complex molecules (ex. CH3CH(OH)CH3 from 4E.7 b) and thus use the incorrect bond enthalpies; should I just practice some more complex lewis structures?

Yes practice them, e.g., CH3CH(OH)CH3.

Although unusual or very hard or very large structures would not be expected/tested.
