Drawing Organic Molecules

Postby Dianna Grigorian 1C » Thu Mar 02, 2017 8:52 pm

When drawing the organic molecules, how do we know if it should be a linear chain or have branches if we are just given the molecular formulas?

If you're just given the formula, like C5H12, you do not know what the molecule looks like. Therefore a question like this would ask, draw all the constitutional isomers for C5H12.
