Organic chemistry is definitely one of the toughest subjects!

Introduction to alkanes
Alkanes are organic compounds that consist of only SINGLE COVALENT BONDS.
Alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons.
They are called saturated because the molecules are in stable electron configuration and cannot accept anymore hydrogens in their structure.
Alkanes always end with "ane" in their names.
Learn at least the first 10 names of alkanes. From the video, you'll be able to see the pattern and number of carbon atoms in each alkane molecule corresponding to their names.
