74 of 137
What happens to the hydrocarbon when its burnt?
It is oxidised, so produces carbon dioxide and water vapour.
75 of 137

Crush the plant material, press the crushed material between metal plates, seperate the oil and plant material with a centrifuge then distill the oil to remove impurities.
102 of 137
Give one use of vegetable oil and why its used.
Used in food because it has lots of energy, lots of vitamins and essential fatty acids.
103 of 137
Why is vegetable oil used for cooking?
High boiling points allows food to be cooked faster at higher temp, gives different flavours because of the chemicals that are soluble in the oil.
104 of 137
Why is vegetable oil used as fuels?
its a biofuel and provides a lot of energy, it also burns in the same way as ordinary diesel so engines don't have to be remade.

They are cheaper than butter and keep longer (longer shelf life)
111 of 137
Give 1 reason why partially hydrogenated oils are bad.
Lots of 'trans fats which are bad for you.
112 of 137
Are saturated or unsaturated fats healthier and why?
Unsaturated fats are healthier because saturated fats increase the amount of cholesterol in the blood.

Hydrophilic is when its attracted to water and hydrophobic is when its attracted to oil
119 of 137
How do you stop water and oil separating out using emulsions?
Shake the oil and water with a but of emulsifier, the hydrophilic bit faces out and the hydrophobic latches to the oil, the hydrophilic end latches to water so it doesn't separate.

123 of 137
Give two reasons why his theory wasn't accepted for many years.
He couldnt explain how they moved very well and the forces needed to push a continent would stop the earth spinning.
124 of 137
What are the 4 main sections of the Earth?
The crust, mantle, outer core and inner core.
125 of 137
Why does the mantle flow?
Radioactive decay is occurring which produces heat which causes it to flow in convection currents.
126 of 137
What is the Earth's core made of?
Iron and nickel.
127 of 137
What is the name given to the large cracked plates on the Earth's crust?

130 of 137
Give one clue that there may be an Earth quake.
Molten rock rises near the surface causing the ground to bulge.
131 of 137
Describe phase 1 of the Earth's atmosphere.
Surface was molten and too hot so there wasnt one, volcanoes kept erupting which gave out gases which made the atmosphere (mostly c02 with some water vapour and methane), water vapour condensed into oceans
132 of 137
Describe phase 2 of the Earth's atmosphere.
Plants and algae formed and took in co2 and gave out 02, they died and the carbon was locked up as fossil fuels.
133 of 137
Describe phase 3 of the Earth's atmosphere.
build up of 02 allowed for complex organisms to evolve, ozone layer was produced (O3) which blocked the harmful rays from the sun.
134 of 137
What is the primordial soup theory of how life formed?
Atmospher was rich in nitrogen, hydrogen, ammonia and methane, lightning struck and caused a chemical reaction between the gases, this reaction made amino acids which collected to form primordial soup, amino acids combined to produce organic matter.
135 of 137
Describe the fractional distillation of air.
Air is filtered to remove dust, cooled to -200 degrees so its liquid, water and c02 freezes and is removed, liquid air is slowly heated, the gases are separated, oxygen and argon are separated separately after.
136 of 137
Give one natural resourse that absorb c02 and give one problem with it.
The oceans but it makes them acidic which is bad for some fish.
