I was happy to note today a chemistry-related post on code golf:
How many atoms in the hydrocarbon?
A hydrocarbon is a chemical compound which consists of only hydrogen and carbon atoms. For this challenge, we will only consider the three simplest kinds of hydrocarbons: alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes with no branches.
The answers are, uhm, terse, eg:
I realize this is more appropriate as a topic for a chatroom, but post here for others to pick up. Those who like to tinker with code and chemistry may take notice.
