DR. JIM BLOXTON’S OPTIONAL STUDY GUIDE TO ACCOMPANY CHEM 1022 CHAPTER 11 ALKANES Note: This is an optional study guide. This study guide is not an exhaustive list of questions that could appear on quizzes or exams. These are sample questions that may or may not be used on a quiz or midterm exam or final exam. Other questions that are not found on this study guide will be on actual quizzes, midterm and final exams. It is important to do all of the homework problems that are in your Chem 1022 lecture text in addition to the questions in this study guide. Make sure that you do all of the Chemical Connections homework questions that have assigned. Learn the basic principles and then be prepared to apply the principles to problems that you have not seen before. Note: It is very important to remember that Chemistry is a cumulative topic and that the material that was covered in previous chapters needs to be reviewed as this material will continue to reappear in concepts that are needed to solve new problems. The following questions are to be answered from CHEM 1022 CHAPTER 11 LECTURE TEXT, LECTURE NOTES AND LECTURE SLIDES. 1. What is an alkane? 2. What is a hydrocarbon? 3. What are the four classes of hydrocarbons? Describe the carbon-carbon bonding for each of these four classes of hydrocarbons. Give examples of each of these four classes of hydrocarbons. 4. What is a saturated hydrocarbon? What does saturated mean as it applies to hydrocarbons? Are alkanes examples of saturated hydrocarbons? Explain. 5. What is an unsaturated hydrocarbon? Give three classes of hydrocarbons that are unsaturated hydrocarbons and explain why they are unsaturated? 6. What is an aliphatic hydrocarbon? Why are alkanes referred to as aliphatic hydrocarbons? 1

7. What is a methylene group? 8. What are the names, molecular formulas and condensed structural formulas of the first 10 alkanes? The condensed structural formulas can be written by two different methods for showing methylene groups. Show both ways. 9. Write the Lewis structures for methane, ethane, propane, butane and pentane. What are the geometries and bond angles about each carbon in methane, ethane, propane, butane and pentane and for open chain alkanes in general? 10. What is a line angle formula? Are hydrogens shown in a line angle formula for alkanes? What is the difference between a condensed structural formula and a line angle formula? 11. Write the names and line angle formulas for the first 10 alkanes.
