  • Crude oil and hyrodcarbons
    • Crude oil definition
      • A mixture of different hydrocarbon chains.
    • Hyrdocarbon Definition
      • A compound of hyrdogen and carbon only
    • Hyrdocarbons in crude oil are alkanes because they only contain single bonds
    • If the length of the hydrocarbon increases
      • The boiling point increases
      • Viscosity (thickness) increases
      • flammabiliy decreases
      • volatility (changing into a gas) decreases
