homologous series
a 'family' of compounds that have a common functional group, with each successive member differing by- CH^2-.
1 of 6
functional group
group of atoms responsible for molecules to behave in a particular way.
2 of 6
structural formula
gives us the atoms bonded to each carbon atom
3 of 6
displayed formula
gives us each atom's posiyion in the molecule and bonds between them

skeletal formula
skeletal is a simplified displayed formula so only atoms shown are in functional group(s).
5 of 6
isomers
molecules with same molecular formula but different structural formulae
