Question 13 Which of the following hydrocarbons undergo addition reactions: C2H6,C3H8,C3H6,C2H2 and CH4?
(a) What is the general formula of alkenes? Identify the alkenes from the following:
C2H6, C2H4, C3H4, C2H2, C3H6
(b) Which of the following can give addition reactions?
C2H6, C3H8, C3H6, C2H2, CH4
Give reason for your choice.
Compare the CH bond strength in C2H6,C2H4 and C2H2.
Define the order of C−H bond length : I→C2H2,II→C2H4,III→C2H6:
