. Without drawing a structural formula, tell how many hydrogen atoms would be present in the straight-chain alkanes with the following numbers of carbon atoms.

a.4

c.17

b.6

d.20

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The number of hydrogen atoms present in the straight-chain alkane having 4 carbon atoms should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Alkanes are hydrocarbons that is they contain only carbon and hydrogens attached by single bonds only. The general formula for alkane is Cn H2 n + 2, where n is number of carbon atoms.

Explanation

Alkanes are hydrocarbons that is they contain only carbon and hydrogens attached by single bonds only.

The general formula for alkane is given as:

Cn H2 n + 2, where n is number of carbon atoms...

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The number of hydrogen atoms present in the straight-chain alkane having 6 carbon atoms should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Alkanes are hydrocarbons that is they contain only carbon and hydrogens attached by single bonds only. The general formula for alkane is Cn H2 n + 2, where n is number of carbon atoms.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

The number of hydrogen atoms present in the straight-chain alkane having 17 carbon atoms should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Alkanes are hydrocarbons that is they contain only carbon and hydrogens attached by single bonds only. The general formula for alkane is Cn H2 n + 2, where n is number of carbon atoms.

Interpretation Introduction

(d)

Interpretation:

The number of hydrogen atoms present in the straight-chain alkane having 20 carbon atoms should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Alkanes are hydrocarbons that is they contain only carbon and hydrogens attached by single bonds only. The general formula for alkane is Cn H2 n + 2, where n is number of carbon atoms.
