consider hexene(C6H12) and cyclohexane(C6H12)
1:Are they isomers?
2:Do they produce the same amount of soot?
The Attempt at a Solution
1:um....I have only learnt structural isomerism.
Are they functional group isomers?As they belong to different homologous series
(cycloalkanes and alkenes)..?
2:I am not sure.So far I only know that the C to H ratio affect the amount of soot produced.
The larger the C/H ratio,the more the soot produced.However, the C/H ratio in both compounds are equal,are there any other factors affecting the amount of soot given out in the combustion?
