They all have the same general formula, CnH2n+2, where n is the number of carbon atoms (1 or 2 or 3 or …). ●● ●● ●● ●● Methane has 1 carbon atom: C1H2+2 = CH4. Ethane has 2 carbon atoms: C2H4+2 = C2H6 (or CH3CH3). Propane has 3 carbon atoms: C3H6+2 = C3H8 (or CH3CH2CH3). Butane has 4 carbon atoms: C4H8+2 = C4H10 (or CH3CH2CH2CH3). Homologous series The systematic names of the higher members of the homologous series of alkanes indicate the number of carbon atoms present in the chain (pentane has 5, hexane has 6, … decane has 10, and so on), but the names of the first few members are based on chemical history [methyl (1), ethyl (2), propyl (3) and butyl (4)] and one just has to learn what these represent.
