Asked by | 23rd Sep, 2008, 11:00: PM
Combustion or burning is a complex sequence of exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant accompanied by the production of heat or both heat and light in the form of either a glow or flames.
In a complete combustion reaction, a compound reacts with an oxidizing element, such as oxygen and the products are compounds of each element in the fuel with the oxidizing element. For example:
- CH4 + 2O2 → CO2 + 2H2O
