Both flammable and combustible mean apt to burn.

Capable of igniting and burning is a combustible gas. Any compressed gas meeting the requirements for lower flammability limit, flammability limit range, flame projection,etc. All flammable substances are surely combustible, but all combustible substances are not essentially flammable.

Flammable gas will burn. Toxic gas is poisonous. A gas can be toxic, but not flammable, flammable but not toxic, both, or neither.

Yes it is slightly flammable.

Yes. Methane gas is highly flammable, which is why we burn it as fuel.

Corrosive, but it also 'burns' with hydrogen gas

Helium is the lighter gas but hydrogen is very flammable

Hydrogen gas is not combustible (ignition temperature > 100 degrees C), it is flammable (ignition temperature < 100 degrees C -- in fact, if you have gaseous hydrogen, it'll burn.)

Class 2 gas only means it's compressed and includes flammable/combustible, poisonous and inert (non-flammable, non-toxic) gases. You would only need a fire extinguisher for flammable gas, which is Class B.

Neon is not a combustible gas.

Flammability is a measure of how easily a gas, liquid, or solid will ignite and how quickly the flame, once started, will spread. Flammable liquids themselves are not flammable; rather, the vapor from the liquids are combustible.

Propene (or propylene, same difference). It's a flammable gas.

B refers to Class B fuel, i.e., flammable/combustible liquid or gas.

Yes, Nitrogen is non-combustible.

A toxic chemical is one that can poison you. It os one kind of hazardous chemical. Other kinds include:flammable liquidflammable solidcorrosivecompressed gas / aerosol

Yes. Natural gas is composed of mostly of methane (which is flammable), as well as lesser amounts of other flammable hydrocarbons. ** Actually, natural gas is not flammable on it's own and must mix with air to be flammable.

It's very flammable - a spark can cause an gas explosion.

Propane is C3H8 and natural gas is (mostly) methane, which is CH4. They are similar in that they are both saturated hydrocarbons that are extremely flammable and commonly used as fuels, but they are two different molecules.

Hydrogen gas is the lightest gas and extremely 'flammable', rather called explosive.

Flammable gas is very dangerous gas. This gas can catch on fire and act as an accelerator causing a lot of damage.

No, oxygen itself is not flammable, but it is needed for flammable materials to burn.

Combustible can be used as an adjective and a noun. Adjective: Gas vapors are combustible. Noun: Don't store combustibles in the house.

What is the difference between ammonia gas and an ammonium ion?

Water gas is the term for a fuel consisting of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, produced by passing steam through heated coke. Producer gas consists of carbon monoxide and nitrogen products. Water gas is more flammable due to the hydrogen content.
