Problem

Alkanes are compounds that contain only carbons and hydrogens single bonded to one another. They are sometimes referred to simply as “hydrocarbons”. State the names of the first 10 alkanes. 

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the name of the first 10 alkanes.

Alkanes are compounds that contain only carbons and hydrogens single bonded to one another. They are sometimes referred to simply as “hydrocarbons


When naming alkanes:

A prefix is used to indicate the number of carbons:
