The Crystal Structure of Bromobenzoic Acid
George L. Hardgrove, St. Olaf College
The purpose of this Mathcad exercise is to resolve a two-dimensional image of the structure of bromobenzoic acid in order to find out which isomer (ortho, meta, or para) of bromobenzoic acid ispresent and to speculate on the pattern of possible hydrogen bonding.
