Polymers MCQs

Polymers are macromolecules formed by joining a large number of small molecules or monomers in a chain. These monomers’ small repeating units react chemically to form long molecules. the repetition of monomer units can be linear branched or interconnected to form three dimensional networks. Polymers are considered to be either amorphous or crystalline although they may not be completely one or the other. Crystalline polymers are more correctly termed semicrystalline as the measured densities for perfect materials differ from those obtained for such polymers.
