1. Why does But-1-ene not exhibit steroisomerism ?
- Because it has different groups attached to the central C=C
- It has the same group (two H's) attatched to one carbon in the C=C bond
- Because it is a functional group isomer of But-2-ene
- It exhibits E/Z but not Cis/Trans due to the varying groups attached to the C=Cs

2. What is the difference between a ketone and an aldehyde?
- A ketone has an C=O group in the middle of it's molcule, thus with an alkyl group on each side. In an aldehyde the C=O is found at the end of the molecule with an H and an alkyl group
- An aldehyde has an C=O group in the middle of it's molcule, thus with an alkyl group on each side. In a ketone the C=O is found at the end of the molecule with an H and an alkyl group
- A ketone can be formed from the oxidation by distillation of a primary alchol
- An ketone will form a dark red precipitate of Copper(I) Oxide with Fehling's solution but an aldehyde will not
3. Which formulae type is this: "A zig-zag line where every bend and end is a carbon atom"
4. Propan-2-ol and Propan-1-ol are ____ isomers
- Functional group
5. Why is 2-Bromopropane the major product of the reaction of propene and HBr?
- Because the intermediary carbocation is more stable (the charge is spread over more atoms)
- It is not, the products are equally likely as propene is symmetrical
- There is less steric hinderance for the reaction compared to 1-Bromopropane
- The H will attack where there are fewer H's already
