Cracking oil made clear!

Fractional distillation is used to separate the different molecules in crude oil by their differing boiling points. These fractions can then be used for different purposes such as for fuels.

Your students make their model of a fractionating column and use it to separate a mixture of different size molecules. The interactive model shows how the process happens and helps them to remember what is produced.
