Question

# In the alkane $$H_3C\, \, CH_2\, \, C(CH_3)_2\, \, CH_2\, \, CH(CH_3)_2$$, identify $$1^\circ\,, 2^\circ\,, 3^\circ$$ carbonatoms and give the number of H atoms bonded to each one of these.

Solution

## There are 5 methyl groups which contain primary carbon atoms. Thus 15 H atoms are attached to primary carbon atoms.There are 2 methylene groups which contain secondary carbon atoms. Thus, 4 H atoms are attached to secondary carbon atoms.There is one tertiary carbon atom to which 1 hydrogen atom is attached.There is one quaternary carbon atom.ChemistryNCERTStandard XI
