It is a chemical reaction (exothermic) in which a fuel is a burned. Reactants of combustion are basically fuel + oxygen. Complete combustion gives carbon dioxide while incomplete combustion results in carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide (commonly known as 'soot').
Thanks for the feedback!

What is anaerobic combustion?

Anaerobic reactions are such reactions that do not require air  in order to occur. Anaerobic combustion would be something burning  without ambient oxygen. Traditional examp

What is rapid combustion?

What elements are combustible?

Hydrogen is the only combustible element, other elements, need an interaction with "something else" other than its self to be combustible. Therefore Hydrogen is the only "fu

Why hydrocarbon are combustible?

Because hydrogen would rather be part of water than part of a hydrocarbon, and carbon would rather be part of carbon dioxide than part of a hydrocarbon. When given sufficient

Is plasma combustible?

What is abnormal combustion?

Abnormal means NOT NORMAL i.e. the combustion which is going on with insufficient air flow producing major quantity of unburnt fuel with carbon mono oxide in the flue gases .
