A liquid fuel, used in homes is Liquefied Petroleum Gas(LPG).
- The primary components of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) are propane, butane, propylene, butylene, and isobutane.
- LPG is a highly flammable mixture of these hydrocarbon gases which is widely used as a fuel in household cooking applications.
- The most active components of LPG are propane and butane.
- Butane is an organic compound with the chemical formula C4H10. This hydrocarbon is one of the flammable compounds used in LPG.
- It produces relatively large amounts of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas.
- The main source of obtaining LPG is from the process of extracting natural gas from reservoirs.
