Question

Using their marshmallows, raisins, and toothpicks, construct these

hydrocarbons and take pictures of each of the following molecular structures. Please include the pictures in your submission. 

-ethane 
-Butyne (two types)
-Hexane
-Heptene (three types)1.) Why do organic chemists say that there are almost an infinite number of different hydrocarbons. 
2.) Imagine we linked up all of the marshmallow carbons into one long chain with single bonds. Would that be a flimsy or strong structure? Why? 
3.) How could we make that structure really strong without removing any of the carbons?


4.) Hydrocarbons with up to 18 carbons attached together are usually liquid, but hydrocarbons with more than 18 carbons are usually solid. Why do you think that is?
