  • B7 - Alkanes
    • Basics
      • Made up of  chains of Carbon atoms surrounded by Hydrogen atoms
      • Only contains single covalent bonds.
        • Saturated compounds
      • All have different chain lengths
    • Methane
      • CH4
    • Ethene
      • C2H6
    • Propane
      • C3H8
    • Butane
      • C4H10
    • Alkanes burn to give carbon dioxide and water
      • alkane + oxygen ---> carbon dioxide + water
      • Balanced symbol equation for burning of an alkane
        • eg. CH4 + 2O2 ---> 2H2O + CO2
