2 of 40
What is a hydrocarbon ?
A hydrocarbon is made up of molecules containing carbon and hydrogren only .
3 of 40
How is crude oil seperated ?
Crude oil can be seperated ecause the hydrocarbons in diffrenet fractions have diffrenly sizes molecules

What is cracking ?
It is the process thatr turns large alkane molecules into smaller alkane and alkene molecules
5 of 40
What does cracking help with ?
Cracking helps with oil manufactorers match supply and demand for products.

why are fossil fuels being burnt more ?
They are being burnt more to higher demand from a rising population
8 of 40
What does burning hydrocarbon fuel with plenty of air produce ?
Carbon dioxide and water - Methene+oxygen->carbon dioxide + water
9 of 40
When does complete combustion occur ?
when fuel is burnt in plenty of oxygen

when is toxic gas made ?
Toxic gas is made during incomplete combustion
11 of 40
What is the word equation for incomplete combustion?
fuel + oxygen ->carbon monoxide + water
12 of 40
what is the balanced symbol equation for complete combustion ?
CH4+2O2 ->CO2 + 2H2O

what damage can sulfer dioxide have onyour body ?
cause difficulty to breath and it can dissolve water into acid rain which effects limeston and wildlife

what are alkenes ?
a hydrocarbon with a singluar covalent bonds
22 of 40
What are alkenes ?
a hydrocarbon which has a double covalent bond between 2 carbon atoms
23 of 40
What does bromine water do ?
It is a water which is used to test for alkenes when alkenes are found the water turns clear from its orangey state
24 of 40
what does adiition polimerisation need ?
The reaction needs high pressure and a catalyst
25 of 40
What compound is formed when bromine water test is possitive ?
A dibromo comp[ound is formed
26 of 40
How can you recognise a polymer ?
You can reconise the compound fromits displayed formula
