Textbook Problem

How many carbon atoms are present in the alkane Chapter 1.9, Problem 1QQ, How many carbon atoms are present in the alkane ? a. 5 b. 6 c. 7 d. no correct response ?

  1. a. 5
  2. b. 6
  3. c. 7
  4. d. no correct response

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The total number of carbon atoms present in the given alkane has to be identified from the given set of options.

Concept Introduction:

Any organic molecule can be named by using certain rules given by IUPAC (International Union for Pure and applied chemistry).  IUPAC name consists of three parts in major namely Prefix suffix and root word.

Prefix represents the substituent present in the molecule and its position in the root name.

Suffix denotes the presence of functional group if any in the molecule.  It can be an alkene, alkyne, alcohol, carboxylic acid, alcohol etc.

Root word represents the longest continuous carbon skeleton of the organic molecule.

To name an alkane, the first step is to find the longest carbon chain.  The next step is to identify the substituents that are present in the longest carbon chain.  The numbering has to be given in a way that the substituents get the least numbering.

To draw an alkane from the given IUPAC name, the parent alkane is drawn first followed by substitution of the substituents in the respective carbon atoms.

Explanation

Reason for correct option:

The given structure of alkane is,

Each and every corner in the above structure is a carbon atom.  Counting the corner and end, a total of six carbon atoms is obtained.  Therefore, a total of six carbon atoms is present in the given alkane.  The correct option is found to be option (b)...
