Test #1 Question 1B

Postby William Lan 2l » Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:01 am

Which bond types do we use for bonds broken and which ones do we use for bonds formed for question 1B in our first test?

For bonds broken, I put that we use C=C, C-C, and H-H bonds

For bonds formed, I put that we use C-C and 2 C-H bonds

Is this correct?

the bonds broken are 1 C=C, and 1 CL-Cl, while bonds formed are 1 C-C as well as 2 C-Cl bonds. The C-H bonds are left intact throughout the reaction. If you see, in CH2 there are only C-H bonds and no H-H bonds

Where did you get the CL-CL bonds from? They aren't even in the reaction.

For bonds broken, it's C=C and H-H. For bonds formed, it's C-C, C-H, and C-H.
