Butane has 2 isomers:CH3CH2CH2CH3 - butaneCH3CH(CH3)CH3 - 2-methylpropane (or isobutane)

What is the difference between the two isomers of butane?

basically there is no difference between the two isomers of butane .actually isomers are similar compounds with different possible skeletal structures ;for example ,butane is a hydrocarbon with 4 carbon atoms ,so its possible isomers are- n-butane and iso-butane.
