Thanks for the feedback!
The match head contains sulpur and an oxidising agent and they have to be struck against a special surface to make the flame. The special surface contains sand, red phos…phorus and a binder. When the match is struck, friction is gererated as a form of heat and the red phosphorus turns to a white phosphorus vapour which ignites spontaneously on contact with oxygen in air. The sulphur starts to burn and ignites the match stick
Sulphur is used in vulcanization of rubber
Sulphur, in a process called vulcanization.
because it grips on the road and tyres need that, also it doesnt heat up and burn as easily, plus it is flexible and air and water tight
For strike anywhere matches, a combination of sulfur, phosphorus sesquisulfide and potassium chlorate.
rubber has good grip on road and more over good control on road and while on rubber tyres it's has less jerk convinent journey.
they used to be made of phosperous but is now made up of sulfer.and
sulfur is the element that is used in insecticides.
Phosphorus and many more elements and compounds such as potassium chlorate, sulfur, silica, and many more.
Car tires are made of latex rubber.
sulfur is used in matches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
Rubber is used to make the tyers of car because rubber provides more grip or we can get more and more grip using rubber and wile diving car we nedd very good grip.
Hi there :D Rubber is a hydrocarbon therefore hydrogen and carbon. Also some rubber is hardened. This is called vulcinisation and it uses sulphur. If you would like a free lec…ture on this or just dancy a chat do not hesistate to call: 07801511359 Many thanks James Cockerton
