Ethane, with the molecular formula\( C_2H_6 \) has

  • (a) 6 covalent bonds
  • (b) 7 covalent bonds
  • (c) 8 covalent bonds
  • (d) 9 covalent bonds

Answer :

Option (b) 10, The carbon atoms have 4 atoms in outer most cell and hydrogen atom has one in outer most cell....
the 6 hydrogen atoms will share their electron with carbon atom to form 6 carbon - hydrogen covalent bonds and the two carbon atom will share 1 electron from each to form 1 carbon - carbon covalent bond... thus the ethane have 7 covalent bonds in total.
