Hey, need some help with my hw here....


How many carbon-hydrogen bonds does ethane have?

How many carbon-carbon bonds does ethane have?

If someone could help, that'd be great...I'm not very good at this kind of stuff.

Ethane has two carbon atoms, so one carbon-carbon sigma bond. No pi bonds, since it's aliphatic. Since you only have one other carbon atom, and only sigma bonds, you get three hydrogen bonds per carbon atom, so 6 hydrogen-carbon.

Making Ethane C2H6

tl;dr: one carbon-carbon, six hydrogen-carbon.

You could use Wikipedia. And its not Biology, its just plain hydrocarbon chem

RSOB and Gavs must have a great relationship to be able to sleep around so much

Yeah, it's pretty flexible. Like gavz.


Likes to play thread games, also!

Basic Organic, really. Weird way to learn it, but yeah.

i was going to say that earlier but chose not too.

and yet for some reason even in uni you go over basic organic again

Well we're learning this is Bio lol...not fun.
