Problem 52P

Write a structural formula and a condensed structural formula for any two alkynes.

Solution 52P:

Here, we are going to write structural formula and a condensed formula for any two alkynes.

Step1:

Structural formula tells us about the atoms and molecules present in a compound and how those are connected whereas Condensed structural formula shows all atoms but in a line of text. It omits the vertical bonds.

Step2:

Alkynes are unsaturated hydrocarbons containing at least one triple bond between two carbon atoms. Let us consider the two alkynes- ethyne(C2H2) and propyne(C3H4). Their structural formula and condensed structural formula are:
