To determine the covalent character of a compound we us FAJANS rule.

The main points are:

1.)The size of anion should be larger

2.)The size of cation must be smaller

3.)The order of charges in both the cation as well as the anion must be larger.

4.)Pseudo configuratons(the one with incomplete octet but complete orbitals eg.Berryllium-it is not having complete octet but its last orbital i.e S is completely filled.)are to be considered as having more covalent character Noble(eg Neon gases.


On the basis of the above theroy you can predict the answers.

alkane molar mass of 72 g/mol
the general formula of alkane is CnH(2n+2) its molar mass is 70 it implies 12n +2n+2=70 n=5 therefore it is pentane. thanks and regards sunil kr askIITian faculty

alkane molecular formula is cn h2n+2 so that carbon mass 12 and hydrogen mass 1 then 12n+2n +2=72 then it is pentane
