Problem 128

When acrylic polymers are burned, toxic fumes are produced. For example, in many airplane fires, more passenger deaths have been caused by breathing toxic fumes than by the fire itself. Using polyacrylonitrile as an example, what would you expect to be one of the most toxic, gaseous combustion products created in the reaction?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Week 2: Metals: - Solids, hard, lustrous - Ductile - Malleable - High thermal and electrical conductivity - Very high boiling points - Can form alloys - Tend to lose electrons Nonmetals: lack metallic properties, generally gases or soft solids; tend to gain electrons. Metalloids: in between elements or semi-metals; weak electrical conductors. Elements are listed in order of increasing atomic number. Exceptions are carbon, which is hard (nonmetal) and Mercury, which is a metal at room temperature. Periodic Law: elements with similar properties repeat in a regular way. Wavelength: distance between 2 consecutive peaks in a graph. -1 Frequency: number of waves per second that p
