why is it called 1 propanol and 2 propanol is not the same

No depends on which C the OH group is attached to

it doesn't matter it comes out with the same thing

No, with 1 propanol the OH group is attached to the first C and with 2 propanol it is attached to the second C. This results in different properties

They are hydrocarbons with a functional OH group, i.e. alcohols

can you explain the meaning of the numbers to me

The 1 means that it is attached to the first carbon atom. The 2 means that it is attached to the second carbon atom. Because propane has 3 carbon atoms

Is the same as 1 propanol

why doesn't it have to be the third digit?

they have no idea or

Because it is exactly the same as 1 propanol only from the other side

so there is no 3 digit

But this is not important with such a short alcohol because if you have it at the third C then the structure looks like 1 propanol, so in practice we only speak of 1 propanol and 2 propanol

why does it actually have other properties, can you explain it to me briefly

Due to the different structure, these simply enter into different connections and the melting and boiling points change because one is branched and the other is more straight

why change soedetenperautr and schleztepermatur then

Because the transition between the states of aggregation is different when the structure is different
