Methane is a chemical compound with the chemical formula CH4 (one atom of carbon and four atoms of hydrogen).
It is the simplest alkane and the main component of natural gas. The relative abundance of methane makes it an attractive fuel, which is yet difficult to store because of its gaseous state at normal conditions.
Atmospheric methane is a potent greenhouse gas (per unit, more so than carbon dioxide).
Methane is the perfect example of a molecule with a tetrahedral shape / geometry .
