Which type of molecule is shown below


Which type of molecule is shown below? O A. Alkane O B. Alkyne O C. Aromatic D. Alkene

Answer

SOLUTION :

ANS : A. Alkane.

EXPLANATION :

Alkanes are chemical compund that consist of carbon and hydrogen atoms, so they are also called hydrocarbons.

The chemical structure of alkanes only consists of single bonds. The formula for Alkanes is (CnH2n+2). Each carbon atom forms four bond and each hydrogen atom forms one bond.

So, CH3-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH3

you can see that they only contain single bond and and each carbon atom forms four bond and each hydrogen atom forms one bond.

Here, number of carbo is 9 and hydrogen is 20 . That means this compund follow CnH2n+2.

That's why this hydrocarbon is alkane.

** An Alkyne is an unsaturated hydrocarbon containing at least one carbon-carbon triple bond. The general chemical formula for Alkyne is (CnH2n-2).

So, in the above hydrocarbon have no any carbon-carbon triple bond also it doesn't not follow the (CnH2n-2) formula.

That's why the hydrocarbon isn't Alkyne.

**Aromatic compounds are substance that consist of one or more rings that contain alternative single or double bonds in its chemical structure. It has (4n+2)π electrons.

So, the above hydrocarbon is not aromatic.

**An alkene is an unsaturated hydrocarbon containing at least one carbon-carbon double bond. The general chemical formula for alkene is (CnH2n).

in the above hydrocarbon have no any carbon-carbon double bond. So, this is not alkene.
