Flashcards in C2.2.7 - Polymer Molecules Deck (7):
1

What are polymers made of?

Monomers

2

How are polymers produced?

Monomers being able to join end to end in chemical reactions, producing longer polymer molecules

3

What are monomers?

Simple molecules

4

What do monomers consist of?

A few non-metal atoms joined together by covalent bonds

5

How strong are the intermolecular forces in between polymers?

Weak

6

How can polymers made of only 1 specific monomer be modelled?

Using the idea of a repeating unit, which is repeated again and again.

7

What are appropriate graphs for drawing polymers?

Dot-and-cross diagrams
Ball-and-stick diagrams
Space-filling diagrams
