Alkanes and alkenes are both part of a series, what is the name we give to the series?CorrectIncorrect
Alkanes all have the same general formula. What is that formula?CorrectIncorrect
What is the formula that represents how much each alkane differs from each neighbouring compound?CorrectIncorrect
Select the accurate statements about alkanes.CorrectIncorrect
Which of the following is a difference between alkanes and alkenes?CorrectIncorrect
What is the purpose of cracking?CorrectIncorrect
Crude oil separated by fractional distillation creates unequal volumes of each fraction e.g. fuel oil. These unequal volumes also do not match the demand for each fraction. What process is carried out to balance out the supply with demand?CorrectIncorrect
Which descriptions are accurate about saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons?CorrectIncorrect
The following equations show cracking of a long hydrocarbon into a shorter alkane and an alkene. Which equation is correct?CorrectIncorrect
How does cracking work?
Cracking breaks down large alkanes, meaning alkanes with very long carbon chains, into smaller alkanes as well as an alkene. Look at the example to understand how this happens. Notice that the equation for this reaction would be balanced since there is the same number of atoms of products as reactants.
