Just a wee question which Im sure i should know but dont so any help would be great thanks.

It gives a table :

Compound Enthalpy of combustion/kj mol^-1

methanol -715
ethanol -1371
propan-1-ol -2010

Why is there a regular increase in enthalpies of combustion from methanol to ethanol to propan-1-ol?

Thanks
