Question 1

Question
Fossil Fuel- Most important uses: fuels, especially liquid fuels for vehicles. Petrochemicals and plastics. Important properties: high energy content, carbon forms very complex molecules.
Answer
  • Coal
  • Crude Oil

Question 2

Question
Metal- Most important uses: stainless steel. Important properties: forms alloys- makes steel harder and corrosion-resistant.
Answer
  • Aluminium
  • Chromium
  • Copper

Question 3

Question
Metal- Most important uses: construction- buildings, ships, road vehicles, appliance cases e.g. cookers. Important properties: Malleable, can be moulded or rolled. Strong but high density. Rusts. Forms alloys e.g. stainless steel.
Answer
  • Iron
  • Chromium
  • Aluminium

Question 4

Question
Non-Metal Mineral- Most important uses: blocks for building road kerbs, kitchen worktops, floor tiles, crushed for road surface chippings. Important uses: hard and resistant to wear.
Answer
  • Granite
  • Gravel
  • China Clay

Question 5

Question
Fossil fuel- Most important uses: fuel, especially for electricity generation. Coke for iron smelting. Important properties: high energy content.
Answer
  • Coal
  • Natural Gas

Question 6

Question
