Molecular weights of ether and dimethylether, and their chemical and physical property differences

What are the molecular weights of ether and dimethylether? Are they isomers of each other or is each an isomer of something else? What are there significant differences in their chemical and physical properties? Is it because ethanol is an alcohol and dimethylether is an ether?

Solution Preview

Ethanol refers to CH3CH2OH (M.Wt. 46)

Where as dimethyl ether refers to CH3OCH3 (M.Wt. 46)

And of course they are isomers to each other as they have ...
