is shown the molecule Benzene. Click off the hydrogens. What geometric pattern
do you see?
you know what the interior angle measurements are for a hexagon? You can measure
the angles of the hexagon using the above software. First click the hydrogens
back on. Click on tools --> measures. Then click with the left mouse button
on three consecutive vertex points. The lower left hand corner will give the angle
measurement of 120 degrees along with several other measures. What is the sum
of the interior angles equal to? At the end of this textbook are several tutorials
which explain in greater detail how to use this software package and what all
those numbers at the lower left mean.
