Answer
  • Covalent bonds
  • Inter molecular bonds

Question 3

Question
Why are long hydrocarbon chains not useful?
Answer
  • Because they are used for things we need less of like paraffin.
  • They are used for things like petrol

Question 4

Question
What two types of hydrocarbons are produced in cracking?
Answer
  • Ethene and Alkene
  • Paraffin and Petrol

  • It destroys plastic

Question 6

Question

Answer
  • Petrol
  • Parrafin

Question 7
