    hey, so im a little stuck

    the question asked me to draw the repeating unit of polymer made from 1-chloropropene and its structural formula

    for structural formula is it CH2CHCH2CL or CLCH2CHCH2 - i was always taught to work from the right but im little confused after looking on the web :/

    and is the repeating unit [ ch2-ch-ch2 ] with cl drawn below ch2 furthest to the right?


    thanks

    These are the same thing

    if you flip the molecule round it's still the same thing.
