Crash Course: Chemistry: Polymers
00:02:00 - 00:04:38
  • Chemistry → Molecules and Compounds → Polymers
  • Chemistry → Polymers → Polyethylene

Hank explains polymers, describes some of their properties, and explains how they are formed. He also explains what you need to make a polymer: a molecule that can easily bond to another identical molecule at two points. Hank focuses on the polymer, Polyethylene, because it is the most common plastic in the world, and discusses its nomenclature.
