Question 13 of 16 5.0/ 5.0 Points *Using terminology and content from the course materials for this Lesson, discuss in detail the difference between alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes. How are they similar? How specifically are they different?
Alkenes have a general formula of CnH2n, n being the number of carbon atoms in its molecular structure(n > 1). Alkanes are known unsaturated hydrocarbons as it contains a C=C bond in its structure. The C=C is its functional group. Compared to alkanes, alkenes can undergo a larger range of chemical reactions such as combustion and various addition reactions( hydrogenation, addition polymerisation, hydration etc). Alkynes have a general formula of CnH2n-2, n being the number of carbon atoms in its molecular structure(n > 1). Alkynes have the highest degree of unsaturation compared to the alkanes and alkenes. This is due to the presence of carbon-carbon triple bonds in its structure. The carbon-carbon triple bonds also happen to be the alkyne functional group. Feedback: Organic chemistry is discussed in Ch. 18 Comment: Correct Question 14 of 16 5.0/ 5.0 Points *Suppose you have a fatty acid that has a 18 carbons in a chain. Suppose also that it is completely saturated. Will it be a solid or a liquid at room temperature? Explain why according to what we learned in this lesson. Completely saturated will be solid at room temperature. It'a molecules can be well-packed in solid state due to they have linear structure. Model Short Answer: Good. Lipids are discussed in 19.4 Feedback: Lipids are discussed in 19.4 Comment: Correct Part 5 of 5 - 30.0/ 30.0 Points
