How are combustion and oxidation similar and how are they diffrent?

* In the combustion process, organic compounds are oxidized in carbon and H2O molecules. This process requires oxygen participation. * In oxidation, an ion is basically lost by the addition of oxygen. * In combustion, oxidation is the end process and heat and light are produced, this is not the same for oxidation.
