Can someone explain fractional distillation of crude oil please??Watch
•Separatingout crude oils into hydrocarbons with similar this boiling points called fractions. Wecall this process fractional distillation•Eachhydrocarbon has a different BP because of the different molecule sizes•Crudeoils is fed in at the bottom of the column at 400 degrees as hot vapour.•Thecolumn is very hot near the bottom and gets cooler as it goes up•Thegases condense when they reach the temperature of their boiling points, so thedifferent fractions are collected as liquids at different levels•Crudeoils enters the column and leaves as a fraction continuously.•Hydrocarbonswith the smallest chains condense at the top because they have smallest boilingpoints. At the bottom are the hydrocarbons with large boiling points and sothey will also be thick and viscous.
