Do isomers have different physical properties?
Isomers are compounds with different physical and chemical properties but the same molecular formula. Structural isomers have the same molecular formula but a different bonding arrangement among the atoms. Stereoisomers have identical molecular formulas and arrangements of atoms.
How do the properties of these isomers differ?
Isomers are compounds that have the same number of atoms of the same elements but different structures and hence different properties. They differ in the covalent arrangements of their atoms. They may also differ in the location of double bonds.
Why isomers show similar chemical properties but differ in their physical properties?
isomers Chemical compounds having the same molecular formula but different properties due to the different arrangement of atoms within the molecules. Structural isomers have atoms connected in different ways. Geometric isomers, also called cis-trans isomers, differ in their symmetry about a double bond.
How do you describe structural isomerism?
A structural isomer, also known as a constitutional isomer, is one in which two or more organic compounds have the same molecular formulas but different structures. The two molecules below have the same chemical formula, but are different molecules because they differ in the location of the methyl group.
What is structural isomerism explain its various types giving suitable examples?
Structural isomerism, or constitutional isomerism, is a type of isomerism where isomers have same molecular formula but have different arrangements of atoms within the molecule. e.g. n-pentane, isopentane and neopentane are structural isomers.
What is functional group Class 11?
A functional group may be defined as as atom or a group of atoms present in a molecule which largely determines its chemical properties. The remaining part of a molecule mainly affects the physical properties such as melting point, boiling point , density, solubility, refractive index etc.
What is position and functional isomerism give an example?
when two or more compounds with the same molecular formula differ in the position of substitient atom or functional group of carbon atom , they are called positional isomers. ex. but-1-yne and but-2-yne. when two or more compounds with same molecular formula but diff functional groups are called functional isomers.
