    Ethene will readily react with bromine, so the colour of the bromine water changes from red-brown to colourless. Bromine atoms will add across the double bond in ethene to produce just one product; 1,2-dibromoethane.

    Answer:

    Bromine water reacts with ethane as it is able to break open the double bond, forming 1,2-dibromoethane. This double bond is not present in ethane, so bromine water does not react with it. This reaction is known as electrophilic addition.
