Discussions: 1. Discuss part A, B, C, D and E.

In part A, the combustion of cyclohexene in excess air will produce carbon dioxide and water. Combustion of cyclohexene is more sooty compared to combustion of cyclohexane is because the percentage of carbon by mass in cyclohexene is higher compared to cyclohexane.

In part B, the bromine in diethyl ether reacts with cyclohexene to produce 1,2dibromocyclohexane. This reaction is known as halogenations which involved the addition of halogen, bromine in this case, to the carbon atom with the double bond (C=C). In both dark and light surrounding, the reaction of bromine in diethyl ether with cyclohexene can be occurred spontaneously is because the cyclohexene molecules contain a double bond between two carbon atoms. In this case, cyclohexene behave as nucleophiles (Lewis base) in polar reaction, donating a pair of electrons from their electron-rich C=C bond to bromine which is the electrophile.
