Organic chemistry I (part 1)
This part, Covalent Bonding and Shapes of Molecules, is the first part of the organic chemistry I series.
I aimed to split the (organic chemistry I) course into separate parts to make it easier for students to choose the topic they need the most directly without having to go through all chemistry I syllables. And, to provide simple detailed materials that can help not just organic chemistry I students but any student trying to understand a certain concept in chemistry throughout years of study.
The course is full lifetime access, so, remember to save the course into your collection to make it easier to go back to the course and choose the point you need to remember or you need to exercise more at any point of your study.
This part will cover all types of bonding in chemistry and will focus more on the covalent bond as a fundamental type of bond in organic chemistry.
Also, we will cover the basic principles in organic chemistry; how to assign formal charges and the curved arrows and push electrons, how to decide a compound is polar or non-polar
In this part, you will learn how to construct the Lewis structure model for any compound, not just organic compounds. You will know the octet rule and the exceptions to the octet rule, and how to predict the shape of a molecule using valence-shell electron-pair repulsion theory.
Also, you will learn the shape of atomic orbitals, the molecular orbital theory, hybridization, and combining both valence bond and molecular orbital theories to create the sigma and pi bonds.
The course covers the concept of resonance and the contributing structures, drawing curved arrows and push electrons in creating contributing structures, how to estimate the hybridization of resonance structures and Molecular Orbitals for Delocalized Systems.
You will learn the basic functional groups in organic chemistry and the difference and trend of bond length and bond strength of alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes, and the reasons behind their discrepancies.
