The molecule that I made is isoprene, but when joined together in a long tangled chain it makes natural rubber. We use it every day in latex gloves. Rubber is waterproof so it's used in wet suits, rubber dinghies, and swim caps.It's a good insulator and that's why it's used in wet suits. I think that car tires is the most important use for rubber we have. We also use it in bike tires, rubber bands, and much more! The rubber molecule is made up of carbon and hydrogen. For every 5 carbon atoms, there are 8 hydrogen atoms. Depending on what kind of rubber it is, it can be used for different things and feel different too. Without rubber our lives would be much harder, so with it we live more easily.
