  • 1. Combustion Reactions Jackie Povitsky Period Nine
  • 2. Different Types of Chemical Reactions
    • Combustion
    • Synthesis
    • Decomposition
    • Single Displacement
    • Double Displacement
    • Acid Base
  • 3. Combustion Reaction
    • The sequence of exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant, by the production of heat.
  • 4. The Fire Triangle
    • A simple model for understanding the ingredients necessary for most fires.
    • Heat, Fuel, and an Oxidizing Agent.
  • 5. Activation Energy
    • Energy that must be overcome in order for a chemical reaction to occur.
    • May also be defined as the minimum energy required to start a chemical reaction.
  • 6. Heat/ Energy is A necessary part of the Fire Triangle
    • The more heat or energy that you have, the less oxygen you’ll need for the fire to ignite.
  • 7. Cook Top Stove
    • Actual igniters spark once a switch has been flipped. The switch that comes with traditional gas cook top allows one to easily see if the burners are lit and to gauge the temperatures.
  • 8. Combustion Engine
    • An engine in which the combustion of a fuel, generally a fossil fuel, occurs with an oxidizer, usually air, in a combustion chamber.
  • 9. How a Combustion Engine Works
    • Ignited by a spark plug, causing a small explosion which generates work.
  • 10. Nascar Engines
    • Nascar Engines have bigger engines than a normal car. They have a horsepower of 300 and extremely radical cam profiles.
  • 11. Nitrous Oxide
    • The injection of nitrous oxide into an engine means that more oxygen is available during combustion because you have more oxygen, you can also inject more fuel, allowing the same engine to produce more power.
  • 12. Cheating in Nascar
    • Joe Gibbs
    • The No. 18 and No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing teams in the Nationwide Series will likely face big penalties after efforts to alter the results of a chassis dyno test.
