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

Ethylene or ethane has the formula C2H4.

It is highly flammable.

EP Mix is a mixture of ethane and propane used for the production of ethylene. Ethylene is then used to create polyethylene.

Yes, predominately due to Ethylene's triple bond. The triple bond makes Ethylene more unstable than Ethane, therefore making Ethylene more volatile

Polyethylene (polythene) is made from an ethylene monomer. Ethylene may be recovered directly from natural gas, produced from ethane or recovered from refinery cracked hydrocarbons.

methane, ethane, ethylene,

Ethane is a colorless and odorless gas that is used in the chemical industry to produce ethylene. Ethane can also be used as a refrigerant. hahahahahahahahaha :)

Pyrolysis to convert the ethane to ethene. The add Alkaline Pottasium permanganate solution.

Ethane applications are: - precursor in ethylene preparation (the most important use) - refrigerant - fuel

No. Not at all. Different chemical structures.

The formula for ethane is C2H6, and the formula for ethylene is C2H4. Both molecules contain two carbon atoms.

ethane is a precursor to ethylene which is polymerized to form polyethylene

H_ ..... _H H_C=C_H In C2H4 (ethane, ethene, ethylene) there is a double carbon bond between CH2 structures.

Because ethane is a saturated hydrocarbon and does not undergo the chemical reactions easily.Answer:Ethane, whether produced as a fraction of natural gases or from cracking of hydrocarbons, is as a raw material in the production of ethylene.Ethane is also a feedstock for acetic acid by ethane oxidation in Saudi Arabia.

Ethane is a chemical compound with chemical formula C2H6. At standard temperature and pressure, ethane is a colorless, odorless gas. Ethane is isolated on an industrial scale from natural gas, and as a byproduct of petroleum refining. Its chief use is as petrochemical feedstock for ethylene production.

The simplest vicinal diol is ethane-1,2-diol (commonly known as ethylene glycol).

No Polyethylene(one of the commonly known plastics) is created through polymerization of ethene (also known as Ethylene). Ethylene is created by steam cracking. Basically mixing really hot steam around (850 C) with ethane, LPGs or light naphthas. Some of the product of the reaction is Ethylene. Naphthas comes from the refining of crude oil and Ethane comes from natural gas.

Ethylene glicol for its BP of 197.3 °C, 470 K, 387 °F

There are three such compounds: ethane, ethene (or ethylene), and ethyne (or acetylene).

Ethylene glycol (IUPAC name: ethane-1,2-diol; Chemical formula C2H6O2) is an organic compound widely used as an automotive antifreeze and a precursor to polymers. In its pure form, it is an odorless, colorless, syrupy, sweet-tasting liquid. Ethylene glycol is toxic, and ingestion can result in death.

There are many compounds containing Carbon and Hydrogen: * Methane (CH4) * Ethane (C2H6) * Propane (C3H8) * Ethylene (C2H4) * Acetylene (C2H2)

The structural formula is best displayed as a diagram, similar to H_ ..... _H H_C=C_H or (CH2)(CH2) In C2H4 (ethane, ethene, ethylene) there is a double carbon bond between CH2 structures.

Of course Ethane could be used as a fuel as it is a highly combustible gas as is Methane, Propane etc. Some vehicles in the USA are powered by hydrocarbon gasses now. Probably would be more if you could easily drive up and easily purchase it.
