The refining process of breaking down the larger, heavier, and more complex hydrocarbon molecules into simpler and lighter molecules
cracking
A process in which relatively heavy HYDROCARBONs are broken up by heat into lighter products (as gasoline)
cracking
n The act of breaking into a computer system; what a {cracker} does Contrary to widespread myth, this does not usually involve some mysterious leap of hackerly brilliance, but rather persistence and the dogged repetition of a handful of fairly well-known tricks that exploit common weaknesses in the security of target systems Accordingly, most crackers are only mediocre hackers
cracking
the act of cracking something
cracking
If you tell someone to get cracking, you are telling them to start doing something immediately. Mark, you'd better get cracking, the sooner the better. very good, exciting etc = great
cracking
Great
cracking
petroleum refining in which large-molecule liquid hydrocarbons are converted to small-molecule, lower-boiling liquids or gases; the liquids leave the reaction vessel as unfinished gasoline, kerosene, and gas oils At the same time, certain unstable, more reactive molecules combine into larger molecules to form tar or coke bottoms The cracking reaction may be carried out under heat and pressure alone (thermal cracking), or in the presence of a catalyst (catalytic cracking)
cracking
The process whereby large molecules are broken down by the application of heat and pressure to form smaller molecules
cracking
Very, usually associated with praise
cracking
Illegally gaining entry to a computer or computer network in order to do harm
cracking
A process in which molecules are cracked, e g , the oil-refining process in which heavy oils are broken down into hydrocarbons of lower molecular weight by heat or with a catalyst Cracker A unit in an oil refinery in which heavy fractions from crude oil are broken down (cracked), using a catalyst, into lighter distillates
cracking
The process of breaking down the larger, heavier and more complex hydrocarbon molecules into simpler and lighter molecules, thus increasing the gasoline yield from crude oil Cracking is done by application of heat and pressure, and in modern time the use of a catalytic agent
cracking
The thermal decomposition of a substance, especially that of crude petroleum in order to produce petrol / gasoline
cracking
To subject petroleum oil to heat for breaking down into lighter products (099)
cracking
a sudden sharp noise; "the crack of a whip"; "he heard the cracking of the ice"; "he can hear the snap of a twig"
cracking
A coating defect consisting of a break in the cured film which exposes the bare substrate Cracking usually occurs during fabrication of the coated plate when the coating is too brittle or the adhesion is too low
cracking
the process whereby heavy molecules of naphtha or petroleum are broken down into hydrocarbons of lower molecular weight (especially in the oil-refining process)
cracking
The act of breaking into a computer system
cracking
- the process of breaking down larger molecules of hydrocarbons into smaller ones When this is done by heating the oil it is known as 'thermal cracking' If a catalyst is used it is known as 'catalytic cracking'
cracking
A sharp break or fissure in the surface Generally due to excessive strain
cracking
-Generally, the splitting of a film surface The following terms are used to denote the nature and extent of this defect
cracking
{i} process where heavy molecules of petroleum are broken down into hydrocarbons of lower molecular weight; thermal decomposition
cracking
The splitting of a dry paint or varnish film, usually a result of aging or movement of the substrate Different forms are hair-line cracking, checking, crazing, grain cracking, or alligatoring
cracking
