Problem 10 : Explain why alkynes are more reactive than alkenes in terms of their chemical reactivity.
Solution :

Alkynes are more reactive than alkenes due to the presence of a triple bond between carbon atoms, which contains two pi (π) bonds. This high electron density between the carbon atoms makes alkynes susceptible to various chemical reactions, such as addition reactions. Alkynes readily undergo addition reactions to break the pi (π) bonds and form new bonds, which is not as common in alkenes. Additionally, the presence of the triple bond in alkynes results in a higher degree of unsaturation, contributing to their reactivity.
