## Combustion:“A chemical process in which a substance reacts with oxygen to give off heat is called combustion.”The substances which burn in the air are called combustible.Combustion of methane:When methane is burnt in the air, it produces carbon dioxide$\left({\mathrm{CO}}_{2}\right)$ and water $\left({\mathrm{H}}_{2}\mathrm{O}\right)$.The chemical reaction can be depicted as:${\mathrm{CH}}_{4}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)+2{\mathrm{O}}_{2}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)\to {\mathrm{CO}}_{2}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)+2{\mathrm{H}}_{2}\mathrm{O}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)+\mathrm{heat}+\mathrm{light}$
