It is either n-butane or methyl propane (i.e. 'iso-butane' )


Why is it possible for different covalent compounds to have the same empirical formula?

Isomerism. The structures of the molecules are different even when the numbers of atoms are the same. Organic molecules are the most common examples of this. Compare n-butane and iso-butane same formula different structures. See link


Is Butane a Homogeneous mixture or Heterogeneous mixture?

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.


How many isomers does each of the first five alkanes have?

Methane, ethane and propane don't have isomers (confirmers are possible) , butanes are two n-butane and iso-butane, pentanes are three n-pentane, iso-pentane and neo-pentane.



Why doesn't butane has 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.


What is the difference between the two isomers of 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.

How many structural isomers are there for butane?

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


How many structural isomers are there for hydrocarbons having the molecular formula C4H10?

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.

structural isomer explain the change in the arrangement of atoms around carbon atom even normal or iso-structure. But the functional isomer show the change in the functional group of compounds


What is the difference between butane and isobutane?

They are both C4H10 but isobutane has another structure, called Isomer Butane: Isobutane: H H H H H H H H-C-C-C-C-H H-C-C-C-H H H H H HHCHH H Isobutane comes in Y shape not in series as n-butane. In refineries, they transform n-butane to iso-buatene. So, they can use it in alkaline units to produce gasoline
