Dichloromethane has a molecular formula of CH2Cl2.

1) What is the molar mass of dichloromethane?

2) Draw the structure of dichloromethane using wedge and dash notation.

3) Is dichloromethane chiral? Explain.

4) Dichloromethane is synthesized in two steps: methane (CH4) reacts with chlorine to form chloromethane, which reacts again with chlorine to give dichloromethane.
Write the chemical equation of these two steps. What is the byproduct of this reaction?
