reaction............

Answer : -----------

a. Caprolactam is used to prepare--------
Answer : Nylon 6

b. Novolak is a copolymer of ------
-- and ---------

Answer : ethylene (olefin) monomers.

iii. Draw the flow chart diagram to show 
classification of polymers based on 
type of polymerisation.
Answer :

iv. Write examples of Addition polymers 
and condensation polymers.
Answer : Common examples of addition polymerization are PVC, polyethene, Teflon etc.

Common examples of condensation polymerization are nylon, bakelite, silicon, etc

v. Name some chain growth polymers.
Answer : Many common polymers can be obtained by chain polymerization such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polymethyl methacrylate, polyacrylonitrile, polyvinyl acetate.

vi. Define the terms : 
1) Monomer : Chemically polymers are complex, giant macromolecules made from the repeating units which are derived from small molecules called 'monomers'

2) Vulcanisation: The process by which a network of cross links is introduced into an elastomers is called vulcanization.

3) Synthetic fibres: Synthetic fibers are fibers made by humans through chemical synthesis, as opposed to natural fibers that are directly derived from living organisms.

vii. What type of intermolecular force 
leads to high density polymer ?
Answer : HDPE mostly features a low degree of branching where the linear molecules or the polymer chains are packed together tightly. The presence of a strong intermolecular force results in a dense, highly crystalline material.

viii. Give one example each of copolymer and homopolymer.
Answer : In other words, the repeating units of homopolymers are derived only from one monomer. For example, polythene is a homopolymer of ethane. The polymers whose repeating units are derived from two types of monomers are known as copolymers. For example, Buna−S is a copolymer of 1, 3-butadiene and styrene.

ix. Identify Thermoplastic and Thermosetting Plastics from the 
following -----
Answer :
1. PET- thermoplastic
2. Urea formaldehyde resin- thermosetting
3. Polythene-thermoplastic
