What is the number of double or triple bonds in the formula C3H8? What is the number of lone pairs Around each atom? And what is the number of single covalent bonds? I also need help with the formula C3H6O with the same questions!

For C3H8 I got 10 single covalent bonds. And for number of lone pairs I got 20-20=0e=0.
I did not get any answera for C3H6O

asked by Meena
  1. Would that be CH3CH=CHOH?
    1 double
    6 single
    no lone pairs.
    Check that.

  2. C3H8 = Propane.
    C3H6O = Acetone Propane.
    I'm not sure if it is the same...

  3. C3H8 is propane, right.
    C3H6O is not acetone propane. What I drew for you is propene-1-ol
