    I also put butanamine and I googled it when I got home and apparently it's the same thing as butylamine so hopefully we get a mark and yes I put the Ea one for that

    the bond angle was 104.5.....non linear shape

    was the answer about the branches alkane having a lower bp than the straight chain one, due to weaker london forces due to fewer points of contact on the branched one ... omg idk ??? thanks

    i dont think so...cos it was 3 electron pairs and one of them was a lone pair...therefore that is 120....did u put 104.5 for second?

    I got that too. Put <120 for the first one which is what my text book says so hope that's ok.
    I found the paper to be fairer than unit 1 last week. Interesting not a single definition asked for on either though - they must be phasing that out or something?

    but isnt trigonal planar 3 bond pairs and no lone pairs

    it was 2 bond pairs and 1 lone pair wasnt it ?
    becasue it was c-c-c
    each c has 4 electrons in the outer shell
    so it forms single bonds with the other 2 c's leaving a lone pair of e's on the middle carbon so 2 bond pairs and 1 lone pair
    but yeah i see - i think you are right
    yeah i put 104.5 for the 2nd one

    its usually about 63 for an A right ? i dont think it will change much tbh

    what mechanism were we supposed to draw? and was it for the straight chain halogenoalkane with Br at the end or the branched one with I?

    It was bonded to 2 carbons and 1 hydrogen so it just had one electron not bonded. It was also in a hexagonal shape so maths shows the angle is 120
