How do you calculate the number of carbons?
The method used to count carbon atoms will depend on how the structure is represented. If the molecule is written out in Lewis structure, meaning you can see every atom, just count your carbons.

How do you do nomenclature?
IUPAC Rules for Alkane Nomenclature
- Find and name the longest continuous carbon chain.
- Identify and name groups attached to this chain.
- Number the chain consecutively, starting at the end nearest a substituent group.
- Designate the location of each substituent group by an appropriate number and name.

What is a 9 carbon chain called?
A two-carbon chain is called ethane; a three-carbon chain, propane; and a four-carbon chain, butane. Longer chains are named as follows: pentane (five-carbon chain), hexane (6), heptane (7), octane (8), nonane (9), and decane (10).
How do you name alkane nomenclature?
IUPAC Rules for Alkane Nomenclature Find and name the longest continuous carbon chain. Identify and name groups attached to this chain. Number the chain consecutively, starting at the end nearest a substituent group. Designate the location of each substituent group by an appropriate number and name.
How do you count carbons in DNA?
The deoxyribose sugar of the DNA backbone has 5 carbons and 3 oxygens. The carbon atoms are numbered 1′, 2′, 3′, 4′, and 5′ to distinguish from the numbering of the atoms of the purine and pyrmidine rings. The hydroxyl groups on the 5′- and 3′- carbons link to the phosphate groups to form the DNA backbone.
