you extract them by drilling wells
What is a chemical which is made up of only carbon and hydrogen atoms?
Hydrocarbons. Found mainly in crude oil. Examples are Ethane, Ethene, Propane, Propene, Methane, Methene... (you get the picture) ...
Asked in Chemistry, Oil and Petroleum
How many element in crude oil and what are they how many percentage of each element is contained in crude oil?
crude oil is just that, crude. It is not required to know the exact composition of crude oil. Each manufacturer of crude oil will have a different combination to each other. -Yeah, but each must contain some identical chemicals, otherwise it wouldn't be oil. -Also it wouldn't be considered a mineral if it didn't have some type of combination of elements. ...
Asked in Physics, Chemistry, Periodic Table
What is oil in periodic table?
Oil is a mixture of compounds (2 or more elements bonded together), not an element itself, so it does not appear in the periodic table. Crude oil is a mixture of Hydrogen and Carbon compounds (hydrocarbons) of varying lengths, but with the general formula CnH2n+2, for example octane, C8H18. The different compounds within the oil are separated by fractional distillation before it is suitable for use. ...
Asked in Fossil Fuels, Oil and Petroleum
Explain how the different chemical compounds in crude oil are separated?
Crude oil is distilled, producing different fractions at different temperatures. ...
Asked in Oil and Petroleum
What things are made from crude oil?
Crude oil is mixture of many compounds. Most of the compounds are composed of hydrogen and carbon, so they are called hydrocarbons. Oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur and various trace metals also can be found in crude oil. When there is significant concentrations of sulfur, the crude is considered sour crude. See links. ...
