Solution: An organic compound contains 4 carbon atoms and one double C=C bond would have the name of:PropaneButeneButaneEthene

Solution: An organic compound contains 4 carbon atoms and one double C=C bond would have the name of:PropaneButeneButaneEthene

Problem

An organic compound contains 4 carbon atoms and one double C=C bond would have the name of:

  1. Propane
  2. Butene
  3. Butane
  4. Ethene
Solution

We’re being asked to determine the name of an organic compound that contains 4 carbon atoms with one double C=C bond.

To determine the name of the compound, let’s first determine the different functional groups of organic compounds.

Alkane

simplest type of functional group
made up only of carbons and hydrogens single bonded to each other
