define homologous series 2

A homologous series is a group of hydrocarbons that share the same general formula and have similar chemical characteristics. Hydrocarbons are pure hydrogen and carbon-based molecules.

A homologous series is a collection of compounds with the same general formula that differ only in one parameter, such as carbon chain length. Compounds in a homologous series often have a fixed set of functional groups, resulting in chemical and physical properties that are comparable.
