Like we did for Biology, let's answer the question the person above you asks and then ask a question that the person underneath you has to answer!

Start me off!

how are hydrocarbons cracked
I've done C1 last yr but an answer:
Cracking allows large hydrocarbon molecules to be broken down into smaller, more useful hydrocarbon molecules. Fractions containing large hydrocarbon molecules are heated to vaporise them. They are then either:
  • - passed over a hot catalyst, or
  • - mixed with steam and heated to a very high temperature.
These processes break chemical bonds in the molecules, causing thermal decomposition reactions. Cracking produces smaller alkanes and alkenes (another type of hydrocarbon).

Add hydrogen, over a nickel catalyst and at 60c.

Carbon cycle is not on the specification for chemistry, but knowing AQA it will be on the first page of it

Yep, confused, limestone cycle (thinking calcium carbonate)

A metal compound within a rock and depending on their reactivity they could etiher by displaced by carbon or electrolysed

air is liquified then heated argon, nitrogen and oxygen then separate out according to their boiling point

Fractional distillation of air, air cooled, different gases have different boiling points so condense at different areas of collum, splitting up the air.
