Homework Problem 6

The following compounds differ in the bonding between the second and third carbon atoms in the chain. Use steric numbers and hybridization to develop bonding pictures (in words or with simple diagrams like Fig. 14.13) of these three molecules. That is, indicate a bond as sigma or pi and what atomic orbital(s) contribute to its formation and also indicate if there are any lone pairs and in what orbital(s) they may be found.
