Ethane is a saturated hydrocarbon of Alkane family of organic compound

alkane, hydrocarbon, organic

Ethane is not an Alkene. Ethane is an Alkane and Ethene is an AlkeneAlkene always end in 'ene'Whilst alkane always end in 'ane'So dont get mixed up!! =D

Methane, ethane, propane, etc

methane ethane propane butane

Ethane is an alkane with the chemical formula C2H6. Ethanol is an alcohol with the chemical formula C2H5OH, corresponding to ethane.

ethane is CH3-CH3, an alkane ethylene is CH2=CH2, an alkene.

C2H6, ethane, is a saturated hydrocarbon or alkane.

No, ethane is an alkane, which is a type of hydrocarbon. Halogens on the other hand are elements in group 7 of the periodic table.

The general formula of linear alkanes is CnH2n+2; ethane, with the formula C2H6, is clearly a member of this family.

Ethene has a double bond and is an alkene whereas ethane has no double bond and is an alkane.

KMnO4 will add across the double bond of alkenes (or alkynes) resulting in the docolouring of KMnO4 but not an alkane such as ethane.

Yes, it is ethane. The alkanes have general formula CnH2n+2 (n is 2 here)

Yes, bromine water tests for double bonds and if they are present (like in an alkane such as ethane) it will change from orange/yellow to colourless.

The compound CH3CH3 is ethane. As a substituent on a larger molecule, -CH2CH3 is an ethyl group.

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

methane, ethane, propane, hexane .... these are some of the famous alkanes

This is a combustion reaction for the alkane ethane: C2H6 + 3.5O2 ----------> 2CO2 + 3H2O 2C2H6+7O2-------------> 4CO2 + 6H2O

Ethene C2H4 plus Hydrogen H2 produces Ethane C2H6 C2H4 + H2 --> C2H6

Methane is the main component of natural gas and the simplest alkane. Ethane is a byproduct of petroleum refining and is colorless and odorless. Propane is a byproduct of both petroleum refining and natural gas processing.

Actually no...ethane ( Alkane class in general ) decolourise bromine water due to the absence of the double bond ( C=C ) ethene (alkenes in general ) will decolourise the bromine water..
