Answer to Question #202316 in Inorganic Chemistry for someone

Question #202316

Ethane (C2H6) has one C-C bond and six C-H bonds. The electronegativity difference between carbon and hydrogen is less than 0.4.

What is a property of ethane?


  • Ethane is nonpolar because it has an even distribution of charge across the entire molecule, which results from the large electronegativity difference between the carbon and hydrogen atoms.
  • Ethane is nonpolar because it has an even distribution of charge across the entire molecule, which results from the small electronegativity difference between the carbon and hydrogen atoms. 
  • Ethane is nonpolar because it has an uneven distribution of charge across the entire molecule, which results from the small electronegativity difference between the carbon and hydrogen atoms.
  • Ethane is nonpolar because it has an uneven distribution of charge across the entire molecule, which results from the large electronegativity difference between the carbon and hydrogen atoms.
