2. In carbon compounds a given group of atoms can often be arranged in more than one, way. This means that more than one structure may be possible for the same atoms. For example, both the molecules diethyl ether and l—butanol have the same number of each type of atom, but they have different structures and are said to be isomers of one another.

msp;  diethyl ether                 CH 3 CH 2 O CH 2 CH 3 I butanol                                                             CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 OH

ich substance would you expect to have the larger vapor pressure? Why?

Interpretation Introduction


Between butan-1-ol and diethyl ether which would be expected to have larger vapor pressure must be explained with reason.

Concept Introduction:

A volatile substance will have larger vapor pressure.


Given information:

Structural formula of butan-1-ol and diethyl ether.

Butan-1-ol will form intermolecular hydrogen bonds and thus there will be many molecules associated wh...
