what is the structure of a saturated molecule with 6 carbons and only hydrogens?

Would it just be 6 carbons in a row then CH3-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH3? I confused because it says saturated, what changes, how will it look?

What is the structure of a poly-unsaturated molecule with 6 carbon and only hydrogens?

  1. What you have written is n-hexane. That is a saturated hydrocarbon. It is saturated if it has no double or triple bonds. There are isomers of n-hexane and those are saturated also.
