Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The given polymer is whether a condensation polymer or an addition polymer has to be determined. The chemical to be used to make this polymer has to be given. The balanced equation for the formation of Kevlar has to be written.

Concept introduction:

Polymers: Monomers combine together to form polymers. Monomers are the repeating units of small molecules which link together to form polymers and the process is called as polymerization.

Condensation polymerization: The process in which two monomers react to form a larger molecule and eliminate a smaller molecule called condensation process.

Explanation

Kelvar is synthesized in solution from the monomers of 1,4-phenylene–diamine and terephthaloyl chloride in a condensation to form condenced polymer by elimintion of small molecule hydrogen chloride...
