Name three features of small molecules/ short hydrocarbon chains:
- Low boiling point
- Highly flammable- good for fuel
- Low viscosity
It has these features because the molecules are small.
Name three features of large molecules/ long hydrocarbon chains:
- High boiling point
- High viscosity
- Low flammability
It has these features because the molecules are large.
Definition of Viscosity
Viscosity is the thickness of the liquid.
e.g. syrup has a high viscosity and water has a low viscosity
