1. Ethanol and methyl ether have the same elements in same proportions. What is the difference between these two compounds?
My guess: Ethanol has a hydroxyl group which is different from methyl ether as methyl ether contains an oxygen atom bonded to two carbon atoms.

2. Write the IUPAC name for the following compound.
CH3CH2COCH2CH2CH3
Is it 3- Hexanone?

3. Draw the constructural formula for 3-octanone.
Is it CH3CH2COCH2CH2CH2CH2CH3?

Thanks you!

    1. The difference is in the connectivity of the atoms and you are correct with your statement. The best way to show it is that the ethyl alcohol is CH3CH2OH and the dimethyl ether is CH3OCH3.

    2 & 3 look ok to me.
