GK Questions and Answers on man-made polymers

Polymer is a useful chemical made up of repeating units. Commonly they are composed of hydrocarbons i.e. carbon and hydrogen. Some polymers have chlorine or fluorine attached with it and so formed Teflon or PVC (polyvinyl choride). This quiz deals with man-made polymers and its applications which may be helpful for various entrance examination preparations.

Polymers are made up of various molecules join together to form long chains or in other words polymer is a useful chemical made up of repeating units. Each repeating unit is known as “-mer” or basic unit with “poly-mer” meaning many repeating units. Polymers are used in agriculture, industry, medicine, sports equipments etc. This quiz is related to the applications of polymer which may be helpful in various examination preparations.
