Butane

In the molecule CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 size 12{ ital "CH" rSub { size 8{3} } ital "CH" rSub { size 8{2} } ital "CH" rSub { size 8{2} } ital "CH" rSub { size 8{3} } } {} , the methyl groups are equivalent and the methylene groups are equivalent. As described earlier, we would expect to see two signals in a 3:2 ratio. If we now consider coupling, we see that the methyl groups are attached to methylene groups. The CH 3 size 12{ ital "CH" rSub { size 8{3} } } {} protons will thus be split into triplets by the methylene protons. Likewise, the methylene protons will be split into quartets by the protons on the methyl groups. However, notice that because the methylene groups are equivalent, they do not couple to each other. Therefore, we expect to see the same pattern as that predicted for the ethyl group shown above.

More Complex Coupling Patterns

If a hydrogen atom is attached to a carbon atom to which nonequivalent carbon atoms with different numbers of protons are attached, then a more complex pattern is observed. One arrives at the total number of signals expected by multiplying the individual couplings. For example, consider 1,2-dichloropropane with three carbon atoms having different protons attached:

The CH 3 size 12{ ital "CH" rSub { size 8{3} } } {} protons will see one adjacent proton and the signal will be split into a doublet. The CH 2 size 12{ ital "CH" rSub { size 8{2} } } {} group will likewise be split into a doublet by the CH proton. Coupling between the CH 3 size 12{ ital "CH" rSub { size 8{3} } } {} group and the CH 2 size 12{ ital "CH" rSub { size 8{2} } } {} group will generally not be observed. However, the CH group in the middle is adjacent to two different types of carbon atoms with different numbers of protons attached. This CH group will be split into a quartet by the CH 3 size 12{ ital "CH" rSub { size 8{3} } } {} group and into a triplet by the CH 2 size 12{ ital "CH" rSub { size 8{2} } } {} group. The overall pattern will have 4 x 3 lines, or a total of 12, if our instrument is able to resolve all the lines. This pattern would be described as either a triplet of quartets or a quartet of a triplet, depending upon which coupling constant is larger. Often, these complex patterns are not cleanly resolved and a very complex spectrum results. The two limiting possibilities for the CH group would look something like the following. Notice that there are two different coupling constants in each case.

20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
