Hydrocarbon properties change as the chain gets ____
longer.
1 of 5
Give 4 points as to what happens as the size of the hydrocarbon molecule increases...
1) higher boiling point 2) less flammable 3) doesnt flow easily 4) less volatile
2 of 5
Explain why similar lengths of chain have similar boiling points...
When crude oil mixture is heated, molecules are supplies with energy - intermolecular forces molecules move about more - becomes a gas - covalent bonds are stronger so they dont break.
3 of 5
