Textbook Problem

Are there any 120° bond angles in ibuprofen? Any 180° angles?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: It should be identified that whether the given molecule contain any 120oand180o bond angles with it.

Concept Introduction:

Bond angle: The angle formed between 2 bonds which the bonds originate from the same atom in a chemical compound.

Compounds with linear geometry contain central atom with no lone pairs and two other bonded atoms. The bond angle present in such compound is 180o.

Compounds with trigonal planar makes bond angle equal to 120o since three atoms gets bonded with the same central atom.

Explanation

Analyzing the given compound clearly shows that it contains bond angle with 120o. The carbon atoms present in the ring and the carbon in carboxylic acid group (-COOH
