What are the different types of chemical reactions? <br />Combustion<br />Synthesis<br />Decomposition<br />Single displacement<br />Double displacement<br />Acid base<br />http://misterguch.brinkster.net/6typesofchemicalrxn.html<br />http://www.chemistryhelp.info/images/chemical-reactions.jpg<br />
What is a combustion reaction?<br />Combustion reaction- when all substances in a compound are combined with oxygen which then produces carbon dioxide and water.<br />http://library.thinkquest.org/2923/react.html<br />http://www2.hn.psu.edu/faculty/dmencer/combustion/combust_app.gif<br />
What is the fire triangle?<br />Fire oxygen- oxygen, heat, and fuel<br />http://ehs.sc.edu/modules/fire/01_triangle.htm<br />http://www.bromine-info.org/uploads/images/halogenated_graph.jpg<br />
What is activation energy?<br />activation energy- the energy that an atomic system must acquire before a process (of a reaction) can occur.<br />http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=activation%20energy<br />http://www.chem.ufl.edu/~itl/2045/matter/FG14_013.GIF<br />
Why is heat/energy a necessary part of the fire triangle?<br />Because fire requires elements of heat/energy to continue burning.<br />http://www.survivaltopics.com/survival/fire-tetrahedron/<br />http://www.newflame.co.uk/images/fire-triangle.gif<br />
How is the cook top of your stove (not electric) a real life example of a fire triangle?<br />Because it has flames coming out of it and it’s balanced by fuel, oxygen, and heat.<br />http://www.firesafe.org.uk/html/miscellaneous/firetria.htm<br />http://www.yournewhome123.com/images/Cooktop.jpg<br />
What is a combustion engine?<br />Combustion engine- an engine in which the combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer (air) in a combustion chamber.<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internal_combustion_engine<br />http://bkachinsky.transworld.net/files/2009/06/internal-combustion-engine1.jpeg<br />
(In general) How does a combustion engine work?<br />The expansion of high temperature and pure gases directly applies force to a moveable component engine.<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internal_combustion_engine<br />http://media.photobucket.com/image/combustion%20engine/silverbeam/CSM%20Blog/EngineCutaway.jpg<br />
In terms of combustion, how are nascar engines different form street car engines that allow them to operate at much higher speeds?<br />Nascar engines have much more horse power than regular cars.<br />http://auto.howstuffworks.com/question588.htm<br />http://greenfield.fortunecity.com/egret/448/horses/horsepower.gif<br />
Hoe does nitrous oxide help engines perform better?<br />When it vaporizes, nitrous oxide provides a significant cooling effect on the intake air and it provides more oxygen.<br />http://auto.howstuffworks.com/question259.htm<br />http://www.hawkinsspeedshop.com/categories/products/images/nos-02001.jpg<br />
Provide 1 document example of cheating in Nascar in which something was done illegally to increase the combustion performance of the engine: <br />Cheating with the engine which involves tinkering with the air and another way is mixing some chemicals with the fuel to provide more oxygen<br />http://www.moto-crossing.net/Nascar-Information/Nascar-Cheating.html<br />http://i.neoseeker.com/p/Games/Xbox/Racing/Car/nascar_06_profilelarge.jpg<br />
