Homework Help: How everyone forms isomers

  1. Feb 11, 2009 #1
    Ok i dont really get how everyone forms isomers, in my class people just move carbons and other things to turn them into branches
    Is there a specific way to determine the isomer of a compound without guesswork and counting to c if the hydrogens and carbons stay the same?

    For example how would i find the isomers of
    C5 H13 N

    There is no equation I'm aware of either.
