How many stereoisomers are there for 1,2dichlorocyclopentane? The answer options are 1,2,3 & 4. I think it is 4 because there is one cis & one trans isomer,so when using the 2^n formula,the final answer is 2^2 =4.Is my approach correct? Need ur help

Dr.Bob, Arrange these acids in terms of increasing acidity: CH3COOH, NH3+CH2COOH, CH3CONHCH2COOH According to my Chem textbook,NH3+CH2COOH has a low pKa value since both the COOH & NH3+ are protonated,so it is most acidic. CH3COOH is a weak acid, but I'm

Hi Teresa, Always remember: ln x = loge(log base e)x log x = log10(log base 10)x Example : ln x = 2 loge x = 2 x = e^2 log x = 5 log10 x =5 x = 10^5 (Hope this two examples have given you a rough understanding) ln(x4) = 3 ln(x4) = loge(x4),right?

Ok,that NH3+CH2COOH is obtained when 1 mol of glycine is added with a strong acid,which results in both amino & carboxyl groups to be fully protonated.

But Dr.Bob,from what I refer,NH3+CH2COOH is the strongest acid since it has both acid and NH3 protonated.Acetic acid is a weak acid,I'm not sure about the CH3CONHCH2COOH. That's what confuses me
