2. Why do large hydrocarbons have high boiling points?

  • They have longer hydrocarbon chains so more energy is needed to break the chains
  • They just do
  • As there are more weak intermolecular forces between the hydrocarbon molecules that are needed to be broken, more thermal energy is needed to break these forces thus giving it a high boiling point
  • As there are less weak intermolecular forces to break, we can just us a lot of thermal energy to break them

3. During fractional distillation...

  • substances with high boiling points condense at the bottom and substances with lower boiling points condense at the top
  • hydrocarbons are chemically separated into smaller hydrocarbons
  • substances with low boiling points condense at the bottom and substances with high boiling points condense at the top
  • crude oil stays as crude oil

4. Fractional distillation is a...

  • physical change
  • good way to separate things
  • chemical reaction
  • thermal decomposition reaction

5. Why does distillation work?

  • Because the liquids have different boiling points
  • Because the liquids are mixed up
  • Because the liquids are made of one pure substance
  • Because it has the right conditions
