What are five isomers of C4H6 October 10

Some of these isomers, such as 1-butyne, 2-butyne, 1,2-butadiene and 1,3-butadiene, are linear isomers, while compounds such as cyclobutene and 1-methylcyclopropene are cyclic isomers. With four atoms of carbon in its structure, butyne is the first c

What is hypobromous acid October 9

Hypobromous acid is always in the form of a solution. The physical and chemical properties of this acid resemble those of another acid known as hypochlorous acid. Purdue University illustrates how the atoms bond by using a structural formula. An oxyg

Is hydrocyanic acid strong or weak October 9

Strong and weak acids are mainly distinguished by how likely the acid is to dissociate into its constituent ions when it is dissolved in water. Strong acids tend to ionize completely and split into a hydrogen ion (which combines with the water molecu

Would starch give a positive Fehling's test October 9

The Fehling's test is considered positive when the solution turns from blue to orange. To test the presence of starch chemically, iodine solution is used. If it turns from red to black or blue, the test is positive. For example, when drops of iodine
