Chirality:- Chirality or” molecular handedness” is the type of “stereoisomerism” that is found in otherwise identical molecules that differ only in the way in which atoms are arranged in “three dimensions”, but cannot be inter-converted by bond rotation.
The carbon atom in the centre is “asymmetric”, (center of chirality), in chiral compounds, having four different groups attached.
As a result of absence of any “mirror plane”, the molecule is considered to be “handed”
There is no in between. That is either a compound can be “left handed or “right handed”.
Examples of Chiral compounds: D (dextro) and L (Laevo)- glucose. D and L amino acids.

I have enjoyed my session with Aparna and it was helpful. I will hope to see her as my Math tutor in future sessions as well.

Your tutor has been such an inspiration to me as I have difficulty getting some of the physics concepts down and truly understanding them. She takes the time to fully explain each and every aspect of any problem I might ask for help and always with encouragement and humor.
