There are a very broad range of chemicals that fall under the heading of hydrocarbons. Many hydrocarbons, such as methane, gasoline, etc., are quite volatile, but tar is also a mixture of hydrocarbons, and it is not volatile.
Yes, alcohol is considered a volatile substance. While it is not the most volatile compared to other hydrocarbons, it is more volatile than water.
because it has short-chain hydrocarbons
I can tell you one thing for certain: hydrocarbons aren't elements. They're made of hydrogen and carbon, both of which are elements themselves.
Err, they're not. Larger hydrocarbons have more bonds to break, so require more energy, or time, to evaporate.
breaking carbon-carbon bonds to turn longer chain hydrocarbons into shorter more volatile hydrocarbons like those used in gasoline.
Volatile elements (hydrocarbons) increase the value, moisture takes up space, absorbs heat and lowers the value.
shorter hydrocarbon chains are easier to ignite, less viscous, a lower boiling point and more volatile. this makes them more useful, so longer chains are often cracked to make the smaller hydrocarbons
Various volatile hydrocarbons will do this, such as gasoline, kerosene, etc. You also need oxygen present
Hydrocarbons are one of the Earth's most important energy resources. The predominant use of hydrocarbons is as a combustible fuel source. In their solid form, hydrocarbons take the form of asphalt. Mixtures of volatile hydrocarbons are now used in preference to the chlorofluorocarbons as a propellant for aerosol sprays, due to chlorofluorocarbon's impact on the ozone layer.
Petrol is a mixture of hydrocarbons. It is used as a fuel.
Hydrocarbons and/or carbohydrates. Any volatile liquid, like ethane, ethonyl, gasoline, etc.
Most - CH4 Least - unanswerable as so very many high molecular weight hydrocarbons have almost no vapour pressure. Hydrocarbon would include compounds such as macro-molecules of rubbers and other 3 dimensional polymers.
gasoline- A volatile mixture of flammable liquid hydrocarbons derived chiefly from crude petroleum and used principally as a fuel for internal-combustion engines

"volatile" means it turns into gas more easily. liquids turn into gasses when the temperature increases and all the bonds break apart. the smaller the hydrocarbon chains,the fewer bonds that need to break so the faster it will turn to gas.
Not exactly. According to the MSDS, the 3 volatile ingredients are: Mineral Spirits, Naptha, and Chlorinated Hydrocarbons. The first two are petroleum based.
They aren't particularly volatile. In fact, they're far less volatile than hydrocarbons of similar molecular weight: * Ethanol (mw 46) boils at 352 K; propane (mw 44) boils at 231 K. * Phenol (mw 94) boils at 455 K; toluene (mw 92) boils at 384 K.
It is a North American term, a short form of Gasoline. A volatile mixture of flammable hydrocarbons derived chiefly from crude petroleum
volatile will evaporate
DRAM is volatile.
hydrocarbons are the organic compounds of carbon and hydrogen
Solvent based glues containing volatile aromatics or hydrocarbons are flammable. Water based glues are not flammable when wet but may burn when dry as would any organic material.
RAM is a volatile Memory. But ROM is not volatile.
