There are two structural isomers approved by IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) 1.) n-butane (normal butane) is a straight chain 2.) iso-butane (or methyl-propane) is a chain of three with one carbon attached to the middle of the chain

there are only 2 structural isomers for butanebutane2-methylpropane

Structural isomers have same molecular formula but different structural formula. Structural isomers for Butane having formula C4H10 are two. One is n-butane and the other is iso-butane.

Nope. Butane has a formula of C4H10. While cyclobutane has a formula of C4H8. They're not isomers, let alone structural isomers, at all! Because they don't have the same chemical formula.

no, structural isomers formation in alkane group starts from butane, but it has two confirmers, staggerd and eclipsed.

Ethane has no structural isomers and hence there is no n-ethane and iso-ethane.

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

Butane C4H10 exists in two isomeric forms ,n-butane and Iso-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.

C4H8 has structural isomers and cis/trans isomers. Aromatic butane,1-butene, 2-butene, 2-methyl-1-butene are stuctural isomers. Cis-butene and trans-butene are cis-trans isomers.

The name butane is applied by IUPAC to the unbranched form of B4H10.However many chemists use the name butane to refer to both isomers ofB4H10 , n-butane the unbranched form and iso-butane the branched form.

Butane C4H10 has 2 isomersbutane C-C-C-C (n-butane)2-methyl propane CH3)2-CH-CH3 (isobutane)

None, as it has 5 structural isomers in which none of are optically active.

Butane is homogeneous. Butane may mean n-butane, iso-butane or a mixture of the two isomers. If the sample were a mixture of the two isomers then it would be a homgeneous mixture.

There are only two structural isomers of C3H7Br. They are as follows: CH3CH2CH2Br and CH3CHBrCH3. Those are the only structural isomers.

Butane and isobutane are isomers or compounds that have the same chemical fomula but different structual formulas.

There are Five structural isomers of C3H6Cl Br

Only two isomers are possible 1,Butane and 2, 2-methyl propane. Not quite: "butane" has no need for a number and the second compound should be simply "2-methylpropane" or even more simply "methylpropane" since there is only one possible structure for it.

With the help of "Chemspider" I identified six isomers.

Structural isomers have the same molecular formula but the bonds are different.

These isomers have different molecular structures.

Butane does not have any asymmetric carbon atoms.

There are many different structural isomers of C6H13Br. A structural isomer is simply a molecule arranged differently but with the same atoms. Try an image search of C6H13Br.
