Name three different allotropes of carbon?
The three different allotropes of carbon are: -Diamond
Name three types of orbital hybridzation that occur between two carbon atoms giving rise to the different spatial distributions of atoms around a carbon atom?
ALLOTROPES are forms of an element where the atoms are arranged in different shapes and so they have different properties. The allotropes of carbon are diamond, graphite and buckyballs. Phosphorus has several allotropes (including white phosphorus and red phosphorus). Sulphur also has several allotropes. An alternative answer to the question is different atoms of the same element that have different atomic masses are called ISOTOPES.
A combination of two atoms of different elements results in a molecule. A combination of two atoms of the same exact element results in two atoms of the same element stuck together, not a molecule. There is no name for this that I know of. --------- 1. Two oxygen atoms: a molecule of oxygen - O2. Many gases has diatomic molecules. Ozone has three oxygen atoms in molecule. 2. Allotropes can be formed from many…
NO! Lead is a chemical element itself, with no particular relation to carbon, which is another chemical element. The common allotropes of carbon are diamond and graphite. -------- Lead is the common name for the substance in a 'lead' pencil which does indeed contain an allotrope of carbon known as graphite.
If there are only 100 different elmements how do you have thousands of different materials all with different properties?
Easy. Just to name a few examples: 1) Allotropes. Pure substances, say carbon can be arranged in various mechanical structures to produce just black carbon in the form of coal, graphite in sheets of hexagonal lattices, or diamond in tetrahedral lattices. 2) molecules with different elements in different arrangements. Self-explanatory - say carbon and hydrogen can produce a range of different organic gasses, metals and non-metals produce salts, salts, obvious one would be water from…
Carbon has several allotropes or "appearances" that we've all seen. It is graphite that is black and it gets on your fingers. Pencil lead is graphite. On the other hand, diamond is a much-sought-after gem of story and legend. It is a hard crystal (the hardest natural substance we know), and it comes in just enough different colors to keep us digging into the earth to find more. We are probably all fairly familiar with…
Propane is an alkane. The last syllable of the name indicates this. An alkyne (which contains a triple bonded carbon to carbon link) would end in "-yne" and an alkene (which contains a double bonded carbon to carbon link) would end in "-ene". The first syllable indicates the length of the carbon chain. So "meth-" is a single carbon, "eth-" two, "prop-" three. Therefore propane is a three carbon singly bonded molecule.
