An organic compound X on heating with conc.sulphuric acid forms a compond Y which on addition of one molecule of hydrogen in the presence of nickel forms a compound Z. One molecule of Z on combustion forms 2 molecules of carbondioxide and 3 molecules of water. Identify giving reasons X,Y,Z. Write chemical reactions for each.
CH3-CH2-OH -------> CH2=CH2 + H2O
Therefore, X is ethanol, Y is ethene and Z is ethane.
