HDPE AND LDPE.

Monomer - a single unit. Join together to make long chain polymers.

LDPE - Low density Polyethene

HDPE - High density Polyethene

LDPE is flexible. The monomers used to create these polymers is ethene, however, the way in which the ethene molecules are arranged in a polymer will determine its properties (the structure and bonding).

LDPE = the monomers are far apart
