    with the same number of carbon atoms. In this case, the alkenes have a boiling point which is a small number of degrees lower than the alkane. Each alkene has 2 fewer electrons than the alkane with the same number of carbons. (Clark, J. 2003). Hydrocarbons that contain carbon-carbon triple bonds. The triple bond adds two elements of unsaturation. For example, (CC). They are insoluble in water. In addition, their boiling points show the usual increase with increasing carbon number. The unsaturated

    Nicole Lee Intro to Metabolism March 20, 2016 Hexane Hydrocarbons exist in this world as compounds only made of the elements Carbon and Hydrogen. One Hydrocarbon is Hexane, a six carbon chain Alkane. It has many uses in daily life, but can also be dangerous if it is used incorrectly or in levels high enough to be toxic to humans, in worst case scenarios even killing them. As stated in the introduction, Hexane is a chain of six Carbons and has fourteen Hydrogen atoms bonded together with single

    biological and thermal hydrocarbon gaseous components that are contained in conventional reservoirs, tight reservoirs, fractured shale, gas hydrates, as well as coal. It also includes high concentrations of condensates, crude oils, and natural bitumen in the reservoirs, and generally in carbonate and siliciclastic rocks. In this view, we may describe a system as an interdependence of elements as well as processes, which form the very functional unit that gives rise to the hydrocarbon accumulations (Mancini

    of many hydrocarbons, particularly 84-87% of carbon, 12-14% of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and sulphur (1-2%) (Simanzhenkov, 2003 ) Page 4. It’s formed from fossil remains obtained from reservoir’s thousands of feet below the ground. There are 3 main groups of hydrocarbons; paraffinic, naphthenic and aromatic hydrocarbons. The paraffinic series of hydrocarbons have the general formula CnH(2n+2) and can be either be straight chains or branched chains of carbon atoms. Naphthenic hydrocarbons have the

  • Application of Sturctural Geology to Petroleum Engineering

    petroleum engineers throughout the life of a hydrocarbon accumulation determine the way in which a reservoir is developed and depleted, and usually they have the highest impact on field economics. Petroleum engineering overlaps with many of the engineering disciplines, such as: mechanical, chemical, and civil. Petroleum engineers have a future full of challenges and opportunities. They must develop and apply new technology to recover hydrocarbons from oil shale, tar sands, and offshore oil

  • Renewable Fuels And The Energy Issue

    1583 Words  | 7 Pages

    Investigating whether a renewable fuel produces the same level of energy as an equivalent amount of nonrenewable fuel would be beneficial to help save Earth’s natural resources and is a very relevant and important science project. The purpose of this project is to figure out which type of fuels is most efficient. In my science project, I will be burning various types of renewable fuels and non- renewable fuels and comparing the duration that they burn and comparing the temperature that they burn

  • The Effects Of Kerosene On The Modern Society

    1859 Words  | 8 Pages

    In today’s modern society fuel is used by a large percentage of the population whether it is for transport, electricity generation or industrial and domestic use. A fuel is a combustible substance that is capable of releasing energy. Many of the fuels used today release copious amounts of harmful gases into the environment and are obtained from sources that will take millions of years to replenish and because of this a new fuel is needed to replace petrol. Kerosene is an oil distillate commonly used
