Oxygen gas is responsible for combustion.
What is combustion?
Combustion is characterized as a rapid exothermic reaction that releases a significant amount of energy in the form of heat and flames as combustion reactions that can spread through a suitable medium. Combustion is the outcome of dynamic or time-dependent activities between atoms, molecules, radicals, and solid boundaries at the molecular level.
Conditions needed for combustion
For combustion to occur, three conditions must be met, which are
- There should be a combustible material.
- There should be a supporter of combustion.
- The combustible material is heated to the ignition temperature.
- The presence of fuel has a significant effect.
- The existence of oxygen or air.
- The ignition temperature is kept constant.
