IR spec is a very useful tool for interpreting IR spectra: Only alkenes and
aromatics show a C-H stretch . Compounds that do not have a C=C bond show C-H stretches only below 3000 cm-1.The more strong bands in the spectra of alkenes are those which attributed to carbon-hydrogen bending vibrations of the =C–H group.
ok, i think i get it I'm currently trying to interpret my IR spectrum. I have interpreted these in the past but never really included bendings in my interpretation because I wasn't sure what these were

So in my IR spectra I have a lot of peaks just below 2000cm-1, and I'm having trouble identifying and interpreting this I was wondering can you help?
