    At which of the m/e values would you not expect to find a peak in the mass spectrum of ethanoyl chloride?
    35.5, 37, 43 or 78

    I have the answer. Try to answer yourself and tell me why because I don't understand why that's the answer.

    Is it 35.5?

    I don't think you can get a peak at 35.5 because that's the average mass of a chlorine atom. The mass of isotopes for Cl can be either 35 or 37.
