How do you draw the structure of polytetrafluorotehylene? I'm confused about the ethylene part.. isn't ethylene just ethene, but in the answer key, the carbons didn't have a double bond between them.

It is but this is a polymer. In polymer, you break up the double bond in order to connect 2 C from different ethene molecules to make a long chain.
