What compound is CH3-CH2-CH-CH3-CH3?

The compound is known as isopentane or 2-methylbutane. It is a pentane molecule containing a single CH bond and 3 CC bonds to one of the 5 carbon atoms, with three CH3 groups and a CH2. The specific branched chain formation makes this molecule very volatile but liquid at room temperature.(n-pentane is CH3-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH3)

Is n-pentane polar or nonpolar?

CH3-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH3 Pentane has an even distribution of carbons and is therefore non-polar. It is a pure hydrocarbon formed with very non-polar bonds.
