I missed a lesson on Hydrocarbons and I've tied to catch up on it but I just don't understand what a Hydrocarbon is. I know it only has Hydrogen and Carbon atoms but what else do I need to know? I'm in year 10 so please dont use any complex language! Thanks!!!

At a Y10 level, there probably isn't much more you're meant to know.

If it's for GCSE, have you checked the specification? It'll tell you exactly what you need to know

Hello! Having done all three science at GCSE and chemistry at A level, the definition of a hydrocarbon always stays the same and as far as I know is the same across all exam boards:

'A hydrocarbon is made up of hydrogen and carbon only' - the word only being underlined in all mark schemes.

Hope this helped!

Remember the ONLY....you lose marks if you don't use the 'only' but imo it's a bit bloody obvious.
