Worksheet: Addition Reactions of Alkenes

In this worksheet, we will practice defining addition reactions and writing equations for the addition of water, hydrogen, and halogens to alkenes.

Q1:

What is an addition reaction?

  • AA reaction in which the reactants are added in sequence
  • BA reaction in which parts of one molecule swap with parts of another
  • CA reaction in which a catalyst is added
  • DA reaction in which two reactants combine to form a larger molecule without by-products
  • EA reaction in which two reactants combine to form a larger molecule and water or another small molecule is released

Q2:

Alkenes can undergo addition reactions with halogens such as chlorine or bromine. What type of organic compound is produced?

  • A Alkyne
  • B Alkene
  • C Alcohol
  • D Haloalkane
  • E Carbonyl

Q3:

What type of organic compound is produced by the addition reaction of an alkene with steam?

  • A Alkene
  • BAlkane
  • C Alkyne
  • D Alcohol
  • E Carbonyl
