    Yes, butane is a hydrocarbon and is represented by this formation |dw:1433099999725:dw| sorry for the poor drawing. I believe its a hydrocarbon for the fact that hydrocarbons are the simplest of organic materials being consisted of only Hydrogen and Carbon.

    What is Isomer? and could you try to put it in you're own words.

    Ok so an Isomer is when you have the same chemical make for example I will use butane and isobutane both have the same makeup of C4H10.|dw:1433103019750:dw| this is the original butane compound and isobutane looks like this |dw:1433103039714:dw|

    so the below compound is a isomer of butane

    I already drew that out! just need someone to explain isomer to me

    What is an isomer?

    Alright, a Isomer is a molecule that has the same chemical resemblance as the parent molecule but has a different molecular shape and will exhibit different chemical properties. Isomers may experience different boiling points and melting points then the parent molecule.

    Let me know if this makes sense. If it doesnt i can try to reword it.

    the three-carbon hydrocarbons propane, propene, and propyne. Write a caption for each molecule, and explain the differences. Already have them all drawn out.

    Alright I believe propane would be an Alkane in which each carbon is connected by a Carbon-Carbon single bond. Propane is a saturaded hydrocarbon. Propene would ben an Alkene in which there are two carbon atoms connected by a Carbon-Carbon double bond. Propene is a non saturated hydro carbon. Propyne would be an Aklyne and would have two carbon atoms connected by Carbon-Carbon triple bonds. Propyne would be an unsaturated hydrocarbon.

    What would be the caption for each one? Sorry for being unable to put that information into captions, I've been up for two days doing finals..

    Thats ok. :) The caption for the the propane would be (propane would be an Alkane in which each carbon is connected by a Carbon-Carbon single bond. Propane is a saturaded hydrocarbon) The caption for the propene would be (Propene would ben an Alkene in which there are two carbon atoms connected by a Carbon-Carbon double bond. Propene is a non saturated hydro carbon.) The caption for the propyne would be (Propyne would be an Aklyne and would have two carbon atoms connected by Carbon-Carbon triple bonds. Propyne would be an unsaturated hydrocarbon.) You may want to make fix the english in each of the sentences. Writing is not my forte. :/

    Haha its fine. Thanks so much! One more thing, Explain what makes lipids special, their general structures, and their functions.

    Alright, Lipids are a large group of different molecules consisting of vitamins, waxes, fats, sterols, and other specific molecules. Lipids are usually considered to be fats and oils. Lipids are special due to how essential they are in many life functions. Lipids provide energy for your muscles and bodily processes. Lipids also serve as a source of insulation to keep your body at an appropiate body temperature. Lipid structures are usually seperated into two larger groups of saponifiable and nonsaponifiable which revolves around there reactivity with strong bases. I mean lipids can become very specific so I dont really want to go much further than this with there structures and functions.

    Seems like he dialect ed everything, I would google all the main points for lipids because there is specific information.
