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').

What is combustion of gasoline?

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

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 .

What are the examples of combustibility?

Combustibility: a reaction of a material with oxygen (oxydation) resultind carbon dioxide and water. Examples: combustion of coal, methane, propane, oil, paper, wood, etc.
