  • Incomplete combustion produces carbonmonoxide and water.
  • Serveral pollutants are removed from the exhaust of the car using a catalytic converter made of palladium-platinum-rhodium.
  • Hydrocarbons are converted to carbondioxide and water.
  • Carbonmonoxide is converted to carbondioxide.
  • Nitrogen oxides are converted to carbondioxde and nitrogen.

Melting poins and boilling points of alkanes:

  • Longer the chain of an alkane, the greater the boiling point. This is because, there is a greater surface area therfore there are more Van…
