What is combustion?
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').

when the pure metal is burned to form the metal oxide.
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…les are sealed septic systems where bacteria digests biowaste products and, also, wet hay spontaneously combusts, even fermenting wine releases heat anaerobically. Anaerobic combustion was developed by Nazi Germany during World War Two to propel U-Boat submarines with limited success. Applications of anaerobic combustion before and after that event are obscure. Competing solutions to oxygenize fuel for more complete combustion of fossil fuels are prolific. Nitrous Oxide is one chemical to increase performance of sports cars by diluting the 70% Nitrogen component of ambient air without the use of turbochargers or superchargers to increase manifold pressure. "Anaerobic combustion" as a term is slightly deceiving in that it is used to describe a combustion process, typically 4-cycle engines, that are not aspirated by Earth's atmosphere to accomplish combustion. Mostly, all combustion processes rely on the presence of oxygen with fuel exposed to an ignition device to perform combustion inside Internal Combustion Engines (ICE). Improving technology has made possible ICEs that have a closed loop fuel system sealed away from its environment. Oxygen and fuel(s) are regenerated from combustion products (exhaust gases) and re-entered into the intake manifold. Presently, regeneration requires a large tank to hold hot expanded combustion gases and engine output is decreased. Oxygen infused fossil fuels are a consideration to improve anaerobic combustion but presently, market forces eschew the added expense and hazard of higher volatility.
combustion is the process of burning something. It adds a lot more carbon to the air.
Combustible materials are things that will burn.
Combustion is a process in which two or more chemicals or substances combine together by a chemeical reaction
IT's posted on Chevellestuff.com it says they have 74.56 cc combustion chabers and came on 1971 200 horse 307's
Combustion is an exothermic ('exo' means out- which occurs due to the release of energy) process in which burning of a fuel takes place by oxidation in the presence of oxy…gen (present in air). It is accompained by the release of energy (heat and light). The following equation represents combustion :- Fuel + Oxygen ------> Carbon dioxide + Water + Energy (O2) (CO2) (H2O)
A combustion reaction which takes place at a high speed and with the release of a huge amount of heat and light is known as rapid combustion.
A reaction with which burning of a substance is related i.e. , any combustible substance burns.
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…el". Fuel such as gasoline have bonds to Hydrogen that bulk it up, slow it down, and generally make Hydrogen dense.
No, plasma is not combustible. Plasma is not something that can be combustible without additional chemicals, as it is relatively cool.
No, Mercury is non-combustible. Mercury is a natural chemical that exists in the Earth's crust and it is used in many different industries.
Gasoline is composed of 20% C8H18, 20% C9H20, 15% C10H22, 15% C11H24, 8% C6H6, 10% C7H8, 10% C8H7 and 2% C8H10 by mass. The Specific Gravity of Gasoline is .74 2C8H18 + 25O2… -> 16CO2 + 18H20 C9H20 + 14O2 -> 9CO2 + 10H20 2C10H22 + 31O2 -> 20CO2 + 22H20 C11H24 + 17O2 -> 11CO2 + 12H20 2C6H6 + 15O2 -> 12CO2 + 6H20 C7H8 + 9O2 -> 7CO2 + 4H20 4C8H7 + 39O2 -> 32CO2 + 7H20 2C8H10 + 21O2 -> 16CO2 + 10H2O You can use this information to perform some lengthy calculations and come to the conclusion that burning 1 gallon of gasoline produces 8.7 kg of CO2. That's what most people want to know.
Cobustible substances can catch on fire but non-combustible substances are inflammabe
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 .
Combustibility refers to how readily a substance is able to react with oxygen within the air.
