No. Fire needs oxygen to burn. Nitrogen is not reactive enough to support a reaction such as combustion.
A fire needs oxygen to burn. Air contains oxygen. So passing in nitrogen stops incoming air refuelling the fire. Have to be careful if there are trapped people who of course need to take in oxygen as they breathe.
Vehicles also need air to burn the fuels they use. Air is about 79% nitrogen. The nitrogen will combust to form nitrogen oxides: N2(g) + 2O2(g) ---> 2NO2
you need oxygen and fire
No it can't. You need oxygen to burn for it to work.
Nitrogen is inert, it doesn't burn.
yes it does
nope oxygen is needed though
No. Fire need fuel, oxygen, and heat to burn. Carbon dioxide is a product of most fires and can actually be used to put fires out.
No. Nitrogen is not flammable.
In order to burn, fire must have: fuel - gasoline or oxygen is good things to burn - wood or paper and other stuff kindling point - the temperature at which the object will burn
Yes. In a lab, light two pieces of wood on fire. Close one in a chamber that is fed pure oxygen and another in a chamber that is fed pure nitrogen. The fire that is fed pure oxygen will burn hotter and brighter. The one that is fed nitrogen will go out.
Yes, nitrogen can burn (combust with oxygen) to release heat energy & form other compounds (nitrogen dioxide, nitrogen oxide, etc)
In order for fire to burn, there is someting called the fire tetrahedron. The things needed for fire to burn are as listed: Heat, Oxygen, Fuel(of any sort), and a Chmeical Reaction with all of the above. I learned this from the multiple firefighting classes i have taken.
Nitrogen can and does oxidize to form various oxides of nitrogen. However, it doesn't "burn" in the same way that, say, carbon or hydrogen do.
Fire can be produced without "air" as air is a mixture of oxygen, carbon dioxide and mostly nitrogen. Fire needs only Oxygen to burn, so if you remove this is will extinguish itself. Without "air" it can still burn as long as it is provided with oxygen.
you need fire (torch) to burn it to the ground.
This is not true. It is oxygen in the air which is needed. Burning is a chemical reaction in which the fuel reacts with oxygen.
Fire can burn still. Now I am not saying you can go up to a piece of still and light it on fire, you would need a really high temperature to do it.
Nitrogen can be used in fire extinguishers as gas propellant.
No. Only oxygen is sufficient for something to combust.
