All of the following are non cyclic alkanes with five carbon atoms: pentane, methyl butane, 2,2-dimethyl propane, and 2-ethyl propane. If cyclic alkanes are included, there are also cyclopentane, methyl cyclobutane, ethyl cyclopropane, and dimethyl cyclopropane.

Propane is the alkane with three carbon atoms.

A non cyclic alkane always has a number of hydrogen atoms equal to 2c + 2, where c is the number of carbon atoms. Therefore, hexadecane, an alkane with 16 carbon atoms, will have 34 hydrogen atoms.

The generic formula for an alkane is CnH(2n + 2).Therefore, an alkane with 3 carbon atoms would have 8 hydrogen atoms.

An alkane is a basic saturated hydrocarbon that has nothing but hydrogen atoms singly bonded to carbon atoms. The alkane with the formula C4H10 is butane.

The alkane containing 3 carbon atoms is Propane CH3-CH2-CH3 .

Alkanes are CnH2n+2, so for 5 carbon alkane, n = 10+2 =12 or 12 hydrogen atoms. It would be like this..CH3CH2CH2CH2CH3

8. The number of hydrogen atoms in an alkane having n carbon atoms is 2n + 2 hydrogen atoms.

Alkane with six carbon atoms

any alkane consists of a string of carbon molecules with covalent SINGLE bonds between adjacent carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are then single bonded to two hydrogen atoms each, and the carbon atoms on the end of the chain that are only bonded to one other carbon atom each get 3 hydrogens. so an alkane with 2 carbons gets 6 hydrogen, an alkane with 3 carbons gets 8, an alkane with 4 carbons gets 10, etc. So the formula is CnH2n+2. This means if you have 'n' carbon atoms in the alkane, you have 2n+2 hydrogen atoms.

Like a six sided polygon is a hexagon. a six carbon alkane is hexane

Yes it is. Butane is a gas with the formula C4H10 that is an alkane with four carbon atoms.

An linear alkane with eight carbons will have thirteen hydrogen atoms bonded to the carbon atoms.

Hexane is an alkane of six carbon atoms. There ar five different isomers with that particular structure.

Alkanes have the general formula CnH2n+2, so if an alkane had forty carbon atoms, it would have the molecular formula C40H82.

In an alkane the number of hydrogen atoms is two greater than twice the number of carbon atoms. If we reverse this rule, we find that the number of carbon atoms is one less than half the number of hydrogen atoms. 32/2=16 16-1=15 So our alkane would have 15 carbon atoms. This alkane would be pentadecane or one of its isomers.

An alkane with n carbon atoms has 2n + 2 hydrogen atoms.So, 42.

With the same number of carbon atoms, the alkane has a higher BP.

C14H30 - 14 carbon atoms (I have the same question in my science text book!)

it is an example of an alkane (with four carbon atoms)

For a straight-chain alkane, this would be C10H22 - decane. However, if this is a cyclic alkane, you would have C10H20 (cyclodecane). There are also numerous options for a branching alkane with various names and carbon to hydrogen ratios.

To arrive at the number of hydrogen atoms, double the number of carbon atoms, then add two.

Hexane. Contains 6 carbon atoms it belongs to the family of alkane
