An isomer shares the same number of the same atoms, but they are configured differently.

How many isomers does C2 H5?

None. It's impossible to form that particular combination of atoms into a stable molecule. (C2H4 and C2H6 are both legitimate molecular formulae, and have one isomer each.)


Is heptane a isomer?

Heptane could be an isomer of 2-methyl hexane and vice versa. Heptane is a molecule(s) with chemical formula C7H16. There are many possible isomers of Heptane.


A carbon molecule that has a different arrangement of atoms is know as?

A carbon molecule that has a different arrangement of atoms is know as an isomer. I just took the test!


What molecule is H10C04?

There's no such molecule; elements cannot combine that way. If you meant H10C4, then it's a structural isomer of butane. (Butane or 2-methylpropane.)


Difference between D L Sugars?

D and L are optical isomer of each other, or non superimposible mirror images. The convention uses Glyceraldhyde as the reference. In a fisher projection the OH of glyceraldehyde is on the right side ( more improtantly in the R configuration)in the D isomer and on the left side ( or the molecule is in the L configuration) in the L isomer. So for all other sugars it looks at the last chiral center for the molecule if the chiral center is R it is a D isomer if the last chiral center is in the S configuration it is an L isomer.


A carbon molecule that has a different arrangement of atoms is known as?

Is known as an Isomer.====Answer 2An isomer is a variation of a compound with a different chemical structure.Carbon, by itself, of course is an element and not a compound. Thus I believe that this is known as an allotrope of carbon and not an isomer. Graphite and diamond are allotropes of carbon as the arrangement of the atoms differs.


Is glucose an isomer?

Yes. Glucose is an isomer of fructose and vice versa. Both have the molecular formula C6H12O6. Isomers are compounds with the same number of different elements per molecule but differ in, for example, their structural formulae.


What is a molecule which has the same molecular formula but different structures?

Same molecular formula but different structure is a structural/functional ISOMER.

How does isomer exist?

An isomer is a molecule or compound that has the same number of atoms as another but a different structure, different physical and chemical properties. Isomers can exist because in large molecules there are several different ways you can position the same elements to make different structures.


Would a cis or trans isomer have a higher boiling point?

Cis-isomers generally have higher boiling points. The Latin prefix cis- means "on the same side." This generally means the molecule will have a greater concentration of either a dipole or dispersion forces on one side of the molecule as opposed to another. This will mean the greater probability of that molecule either being polar or having a temporary dipole, which means greater attraction between those molecules. In a trans-isomer, which means "across from," you will have a certain atom across the molecule from the other, which means often, those potential dipoles or dispersion forces will "cancel each other out," meaning less probability for attraction between molecules.
