Students will be able to
- use naming techniques to name simple branched alkanes and cycloalkanes to correctly identify different organic molecules,
- define and compare the general formulas for an alkane and a cycloalkane,
- describe the bonding in alkanes in order to explain the concept of saturation with respect to hydrocarbons,
- describe trends within the physical properties of alkanes,
- identify and list potential sources and uses of hydrocarbons.
