The simplest hydrocarbon , methane is a gas with a chemical formula of CH4. Methane The carbon atom central to the methane molecule has 4 valence electrons and thus needs 4 more electrons from four hydrogen atoms to complete its octet. The hydrogen atoms have a 109 degree bond angle giving the molecule a tetrahedral geometry .
