Yes, it is possible for an empirical formula to be the same as the molecular formula. For example, Lactic acid's molecular formula is C3H6O3, which would make its empirical formula CH2O.

This is a hydrocarbon called Acetylene (IUPAC name : Ethyne). It contains two carbon atoms joined with a triple bond, and 2 hydrogen atoms connected to the two carbon atoms with a single bond. Its structure : H-C≡C-H

Ethyne is an alkyne, and as such, has a triple covalent bond between carbon atoms. Its molecular formula is C2H2. It is commonly known as acetylene.

The most common one is molecular nitrogen, with formula N2.

An alkine is a hydrocarbon compound with a carbon-to-carbon triple bond. The smallest possible alkine is saline, which as structural formula HCCH, with the carbon atoms triple bonded.

The molecular formula for ethyne is C2H2. The formula is often written as HC=CH to emphasize the fact that the bond between the two carbon atoms is a triple bond.

As the molecular formula for benzene is C6H6 so acetylene CH Triple Bond CH should be its monomer.

Structural formula shows the exact number of atoms of various elements present in a single molecule of a compound. Structural formula also shows how are the atoms bonded or arranged with either single bond, double bond or a triple bond and you can therefore furthermore estimate the shape of the particular molecule. Structural formula can be used to differentiate between structural isomers, which are two compounds with the same empirical and molecular formulae but different chemical structures. For instance, propanol has three isomers, which are propan-1-ol (CH3-CH2-CH2-O-H), propan-2-ol (CH3-CHOH-CH3) and methoxyethane (CH3-CH2-O-CH3).

Ethyne, also called acetylene has the formula C2H2 and the structural formula of H-C≡C-H. Ethene has the formula C2H4 and the structural formula of H2C=CH2.

Formula for saturated hydrocarbons (alkanes): CnH2n+2 Formula for unsaturated hydrocarbons with double bonds (alkenes): CnH2n Formula for unsaturated hydrocarbons with triple bonds (alkynes): CnH2n-2 Formula for saturated hydrocarbons containing one ring: CnH2n

The molecular formula of acetylene gas is C2H2. The shape of the molecule is linear, with the two carbon atoms joined by a triple bond and each carbon atom also bonded to one hydrogen atom by a single bond.

The molecular geometry of NO2 is linear. N(triple bond)N(single bond)O

linear structure and a triple bond

Hydrogen cyanide, CN bonds are often triple.

An alkyne is an organic compound. An alkyne carbon chain has a triple bond. There are many many different alkynes. I recommend researching 'alkyne' on Wikipedia or somewhere.

linear with the carbons triple bonding with each other linear with the carbons triple bonding with each other

Ethene, also called ethylene, is the simplest compound with a double covalent bond, and ethyne, also called acetylene, is the simples compound with a triple covalent bond.

The smallest such hydrocarbon molecule is named "ethyne" or "acetylene" and has the formula C2H2 or HC=CH.

It is about alkynes. We call them alkynes.

The genral chemical formulas for hydrocarbons with no double or triple bonds alkanes, 1 double bond alkenes, 1 triple bond alkynes arealkanes is CnH(2n+2)alkenes is CnH2nalkynes, CnH2n-2

Nitrogen does not lose or gain electrons. It is a diatomic molecule (N2) and is a molecular compound which has covalent bonding. In other words, the molecule has a triple bond, in which 6 electrons are shared, three for each atom.

Yes, nitrogen molecules have triple bonds between two nitrogen atoms.

Nitrogen molecules, with formula N2, have triple covalent bonds

The presence or absence of a direct bond between each possible pair of atoms in the molecule. Sometimes structural formulas also show whether a particular bond is "single", "double", or "triple", that is, whether the bond involves two, four, or six total electrons from the two bonded atoms.A structural formula shows how the atoms are arranged in a molecule of that substance. For example, the molecular formula of water is H2O, while its structural formula is H-O-H, indicating that each hydrogen atom is bonded to the central oxygen atom.
