The various hydrocarbons present in petroleum have different boiling points. as the number of carbon atoms in a hydrogen increases,it's boiling point also increases.This property is used to separate the different components of petroleum by fractional distillation.The components with different boiling points are known as fractions, and the process of separating the fractions by fractional distillation is known as refining.
