1.     A mixture contains two or more elements or compounds that are not chemically bonded.

2.     Crude oil is a dark smelly liquid. It is a mixture of lots of chemical compounds

3.     When crude comes straight out from the ground it is not very useful. There are too many substances in it. Before using crude oil we need to separate the substance to different boiling points known as fractions.

4.     We can separate mixture of substance from crude oil by distillation.

5.     Most compounds in crude oil are hyrdogencarbons.This means that their molecules contain hydrogen and carbon. They are alkanes.

6.     Alkanes contain as many hydrogen atoms as possible in each molecule and so we call hydrocarbons and also
