    1) Give the Frequency ranges (in cm-1) for each of the following:
    a. O-H stretch
    b. aldehyde
    c. -C-H stretch
    d. =C-H stretch
    2) Briefly describe how could you distinguish between cyclohexane and cyclohexene by IR?
    3) Define the following terms:
    a. Coupling constant
    b. Chemical shift
    c. Spin-spin coupling.
    4) A solid samples are prepared by examination by IR spectroscopy by fusing them in a KBr pellet or dissolving them in CCl4 and subtracting a background of pure CCl4 from the spectrum. Assuming equal solubility of the compound in both solvents why would acetone be a poor substitute for CCl4 in the latter method.
    5) Predict the splitting pattern for each kind of proton in the 1H NMR spectra of the following:
    a. CH3CH2CH2Br
    6) Predict the number of signals that would appear in the 13C NMR spectra of the molecules from the previous questions.
    7) Propose a structure for a molecule with a molecular formula C10H13NO and the following 1H NMR data. Explain your answer.
