Solution 9Q :

Step 1:

The difference between saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons are :

Saturated hydrocarbons

Unsaturated hydrocarbons

These hydrocarbons has chain of carbon atoms that are linked together by single bonds.

These hydrocarbons has chain of carbon atoms linked together by double bonds or triple bonds.

They are usually known as alkanes.

They are known as alkenes and alkynes.

These compounds have more number of carbon atoms when compared to unsaturated hydrocarbons.

These compounds have lesser number of carbon atoms when compared to saturated hydrocarbons.

They are less reactive in nature.

They are more reactive in nature.

They undergo substitution reactions, in which one or more hydrogen atoms on an alkane are replaced by one or more other types of atoms.

They undergo addition reactions, in which atoms add across the multiple bond.
