What is a hydrocarbon?

Hydrocarbon is the organic chemical compound form by bonding hydrogen and carbon atoms in chemistry found in natural gas, coal, petroleum oil uses as the source of natural energy.

In this part of learning science, we discuss different topics related to properties, structure, chemical composition, and uses of different hydrocarbons in daily life.
