Lesson 1 | Hydrocarbons

  • construct models, identify the functional group, and write structural and molecular formulae for homologous series of organic chemical compounds, up to C8 (ACSCH035) :
    – alkanes
    – alkenes
    – alkynes

Lesson 2 | Properties of compounds within a homologous series

  • conduct an investigation to compare the properties of organic chemical compounds within a homologous series, and explain these differences in terms of bonding (ACSCH035)

  • explain the properties within and between the homologous series of alkanes with reference to the intermolecular and intramolecular bonding present

Lesson 3 | Shapes of hydrocarbons

  • analyse the shape of molecules formed between carbon atoms when a single, double or triple bond is formed between them

Lesson 4 | Hydrocarbons - Environmental, economic and sociocultural factors

  • describe the procedures required to safely handle and dispose of organic substances (ACSCH075)
