There donot exist a formula for counting chainisomers. However for quick remembring u can use the following concept for first 9 alkanes


For each consequetive memeber , the no of chain isomers is of  2n-1 where n is the no of isomers of preceding member


Carbon atoms - Isomers


4 - 2 (Buane has 2 isomers)


5 - 3 (2*2-1)


6 - 5 (2*3-1)


7 - 9 (2*5-1)


8 - 18 (exception 2*9)


9 - 35 (2*18-1)

why carbon always form covalent bond?
 
 
The carbon atom needs to either gain or lose 4 electrons to complete its valence shell. But it is difficult for it to lose 4 electrons as it would require about 6200 joules of energy and for...

In the following hypothetical reaction A + 3B   2C + D, initial moles of A is twice that of B. If at equilibrium moles of B and C are equal, % of B reacted is (A) 10% (B) 20% (C) 40%...
 
 
A + 3B ----- 2C + D initially 1 1 0 0 let x moles of B be consumed at equillibrium equilli 1-x 1-3x 2x x given 1-3x=2x x=1/5 it means 3/5 moles are consumed which means 60 % Herre B is the...
