nonpolar- all alkanes have only nonpolar covalent bonds

Unless it's substituted with polar groups, propane, like all alkanes, is non-polar.

No. it is non-polar molecule

No this species is propane and it is non-polar.

Propane is a hydrocarbon and is non-polar in nature while water is a polar solvent. So, propane is hydrophobic and is not miscible in water.

Glycerine (propane-tri-ol) is polar, same as water

Because propane is non-polar, the intermolecular force would be: London Dispersion Forces

Liquid propane can dissolve many non-polar compounds such as lipids, hydrocarbonds, halogenated hydrocarbons (with exception to fluorocarbons), etc. Substances such as water are too polar and are more attracted to itself than non-polar substances and thus do not dissolve.

Propane is not polar because it is symmetrical.

Propane itself is non polar, but the presence of the ketone group (C=O) in propanone makes it a polar molecule (oxygen has partial -ve charge). As propanone is a small molecule it can be soluble in water, which itself is polar.

Propane is a hydrocarbon and a gas. It is a non-metal.

Propane is not an electrolyte.

Soap is polar and non-polar

the molecule is non-polar the CH bonds are also non-polar

Substances that do not dissolve in water are called "insoluble" or "non-soluble." For water (a polar molecule), anything non-polar will not dissolve, including hexane, methane, ethane, propane, octane, oils, waxes, and plastics.

Propane is not an electrolyte.

polar, however.. PF5 is non-polar.

Ethylacetate is non-polar.

Naphthalene is non polar.

It is non-polar, covalent.

Ethylbenzene is non polar.

Polar molecules reacts with polar molecules and non-polar molecules react with non-polar molecules.

Coffee is neither polar nor non polar.

Xylene, as a hydrocarbon, is pretty non-polar.
