The neccesary and sufficient condition for optical activity is that molecule should not contain the following symmetry elements i.e i) plane of symmetry ii) contre of symmetry iii) alternate axis of symmetry. Tartric acid has optally ativity in one configuration. in other configuration it doen't have...

Tartric acid has optally ativity in one configuration. in other configuration it doen't have optical activity due to presence of plane of symmetry. we have both optically active tartric acid as well optically inactive tartric acid. read less

Optically activity of a compound is not determined by seeing the chirality of a carbon but by seeing the optical activity of the complete compund . For that u need to check symmetry of elements. If any symm. element is present then compound is not optically active. In tartaric acid there is plane of...

If any symm. element is present then compound is not optically active. In tartaric acid there is plane of symmetry in b/w which divides the molecule into two equal halves thus making it a meso compund and hence optically inactive. read less
