why can a mixture of ethyne and air not used for welding?
Asked by ayushisahai | 9th May, 2009, 03:43: PM
Mixture of ethyne and air cannot be used due to hazard associated with ethyne's intrinsic instability; samples of concentrated or pure acetyle will explosively decompose in air. Acetylene can explode with extreme violence if the pressure of the gas exceeds about 200 kPa (≈39 psi) as a gas or when in liquid or solid form.
