Geometric Isomerism in Organic Molecules

Geometric isomers are defined as two or more compounds having same number of and types of atoms and bonds but with different geometries for items. For example consider these two compounds fumaric acid and  maleic acid have the same molecular formula and also same molecular weight but still they are not the same molecule. At …
