Draw the structural formula for the straight-chain hydrocarbon with the formula C 3 H 6 .

Interpretation Introduction


The structural formula for the straight chain of hydrocarbon with the formula C3H6 is to be drawn.

Concept Introduction:

Hydrocarbons are the organic compounds which contain only carbon and hydrogen atoms.

The structural formula is a two-dimensional representation of a compound, which gives the information about the atoms that are bonded together and the atoms that are not.

Alkenes are the unsaturated hydrocarbons which contain at least one double bond between the carbon atoms.

The general molecular formula for the alkene is CnH2n.


In the compound C3H6, there are three carbon atoms and six hydrogen atoms.

In the structural formula of C3H6, the three carbon atoms are placed next to each other with a double bond between two of them and a single bond and then, the hydrogen atoms are placed with a single bond to give each carbon four bonds
