    Helloo guys,

    Can someone help me with identifying the haloalkane on the attachment (its task 2 on the pdf file) please and explain how you get to the answer.

    Thanks in advance

    What are your thoughts?

    How have you tried to analyse the information?

    yeah I've looked at the question and I've come up with an answer of C3H7Br as the haloalkane but not sure about if that's right or not.

    Plus I don't understand what the question means by identify and account for the intensity and position of each peak in the n.m.r and mass spectra of C3H7X. That's where I've got up to with this question

    yes but this is the first time doing questions based on it, I understood it whilst doing simple questions but I really don't get this one

    What does the doublet mean?
    This means that there must be one hydrogen on the adjacent carbon

    And what does the multiplet (heptet) mean?

    (and I'm soon to go to bed, so I'll ask the question, now, that I would have asked when you would have replied to this reply... and what does the fact that you've got two environments tell you?)

    multiplet is when you have more than 3 neighbouring hydrogens around the carbon

    thank you for helping me out two environments show that there must be two different hydrogen environments?

    In this case, it is a nice, neat, symmetrical heptet - what would that suggest?
