What type of wood do you need for starting a friction fire?
It is best to use a soft wood for the spindle and base board. Some examples of soft wood are cotton wood, elderberry, mulefat, and saguaro. You can also use cattail for the spindle if you are able to find it.

No . You can always start a fire by friction (get two pieces of wood and friction them one against the other. Takes time, but it's spark-free).
Fuel, Oxygen and a heat source. Fuel, Oxygen and heat are everywhere why is the whole earth not on fire? because it is not Heat but a source of ignition that is needed.
heat breaks long cellulose molecules down into shorter molecules that can react with oxygen in a process called 'pyrolysis.' heat is required to initiate pyrolysis in fuel bef…ore the fuel will burn. smaller pieces of tinder or kindling will heat more easily than larger pieces. since heat rises, allow the flame to rise up the match or tinder to heat additional fuel. Heat can be suppressed with dirt or water, by spreading the fuel apart, or by adding green or wet wood which requires more heat to dry it.
You need oxygen, heat, and fuel.
Fire is made by the sun, if you want to go camping, and make a fire from wood, get a bunch of wood and you only do this in the daytime before the sun is gone. And pack one or …two magnifying glasses. Put the magnifying glass in front of the sun from were you are. And do this when it is very hot outside. Then the sun will shine through, and it will heat up the wood and then you have to wait awhile and then, fire will be on the wood. THATS HOW YOU MAKE FIRE.
The best thing to do is buy a box of starter logs. You have to have really hot coals to get many oaks to burn. I use duraflame starter bricks and save half hour of prep time….
You Start a fire in the woods by finding little sticks and rubbing them together when you have a flame find some moss and light it
It's obvious it's chemical and also I love sulli
It needs the fire triangle: Oxygen, heat and fuel
Trying to start a fire with damp wood is very difficult. When I backpack I always carry some tinder (dry shavings) to start a fire. Wet wood will not burn unless the fire is h…ot enough to evaporate the water that is in the wood. You can burn damp wood on an already burning fire but it will not burn as hot. Wet wood tends to smoke a lot and may go out on a small fire that does not have a good coal base. I have had to use damp wood to start a fire before but I had to shave down the wood until I found dry wood inside. Once you get a small fire started gradually add wood until you can get a hot fire. Too much wet wood at once can put out a fire. Not a good thing when you are cold and wet. Be patient.
Fuel is one of three essential elements needed to start and maintain fire, you also must have oxygen and heat.

Because without friction, it would not be successful when typing!

Agba. It's a large African tree , it's wood is used in furniture making. Ash is another.
Three things are needed to make fire: . fuel . oxygen . heat The heat source can be a flame, but it doesn't have to be. Manymodern ovens, stoves and barbecue grills igni…te the fuel with anelectrical spark.
