This is essentially a question concerning the trend of molecules in the same homologus series that have differing chain lengths. When we increase chain length, the number of C-C bonds increase in proportion to C-H bonds. Looking at the bond energies, the bond energy of a C-C bond is $347 kJ/mol$, while for C-H it is $414 kJ/mol$. This means to break a C-C ...
