enumerate the 100 alkanes and its molecular formula
You must be kidding? First, there are many more than 100 alkanes and second, surely you don't expect us to write all of them down for you.
The general formula for alkanes is
n=1 methane (CH4)
n=2 ethane (C2H6)
and so on to C100H202 or hectane
I don't understand what is meant by "enumerate the 100 alkanes"
