    physical structure (infraestructura?)
    The paraffin types are composed of molecules in which the number of hydrogen atoms is always two times more than twice the number or carbon atoms. (??????????????)
    naphthenes (naftenos?)
    ... composed of twice as many hydrogen atoms as carbon atoms. (?)

    Hi Flopa,

    physical structure is related to context,by example if the context is
    a building theme,then is could be "infraestructura" although in english
    is "infraestructure".
    Now,if the context is a chemical theme then could be physical structure
    as "estructura física" by example: la estructura física de un átomo es....

    Related your phrase,I think there are 2 wrong words in this text,
    when you say "hydrogen atoms is always two (times) more than twice
    the number( or )carbon atoms. " should be
    without "times" and " of " for " or ".

    therefore,

    Los tipos de parafina son compuestos de moléculas en las cuales el número
    de átomos de hidrógeno es siempre dos más que el doble del número de
    átomos de carbono.

    -naphthenes yes,is nafteno

    -... composed of twice as many hydrogen atoms as carbon atoms.
    ... compuesto del doble tanto de átomos de hidrógeno como átomos de carbono.

    hope it helps

    Mario
