  • 3. What is a combustion reaction?
    It’s a chemical reaction between an oxidant and a fuel source.

  • 4. What is the fire triangle?
    It is a triangle that shows you what you would need to form a fire.

  • 5. What is activation energy?
    It’s the energy that is needed to create a chemical reaction.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Activation_energy
  • 6. Why is heat/energy a necessary part of the fire triangle?
    Without the energy (heat, oxygen, and fuel) you would not be able to create a fire.

  • 7. How is the cooktop of your stove (not electric) a real-life example of a fire triangle?
    When a stove is turned on, the gas is rushed and meets with the energy and ignites to creat a fire.

  • 8. What is a combustion engine?
    It is when fuel is mixed with air in a combustion chamber.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combustion_Engine
  • 9. How does a combustion engine work?
    It works when a type of fuel fills the chamber and then it ignited by something causing a small explosion which causes the engine to work.

  • 10. In terms of combustion, how are NASCAR engines different from street car engines that allow them to operate at much higher speeds?
    A NASCAR engine is based on the size of its engine. They are based ob a 340 cubic inch V-8 design that was first created in the 1960s.

  • 11. How does nitrous oxide help engines perform better?
    Its better because when it is heated up until a temperature of 570 degrees F, it becomes oxygen and nitrogen. This means the engine will be able to get more oxygen which will perform better.

  • 12. Provide 1 documented example of cheating in NASCAR in which something was done illegally to increase the combustion performance of the engine
    Michael Waltrip, a NASCAR racer’s car was found with a additive fuel in his cars fuel and was DQed and fined $100,000.
