An organic compound burns with a sooty flame. Is it a saturated or an unsaturated compound?

Answer :

An organic compound burns with a sooty flame, it is an unsaturated compound.


Explanation:


i. When an unsaturated compound is burned it will give a yellow flame with lots of smoke.


ii. This is the sooty flame.
