What are the different typed of chemical reactions?<br />Acid-base<br />Double displacement<br />Dingle displacement<br />Synthesis<br />Decomposition <br />
What is a combustion reaction?<br />When oxygen combines with another compound to form water and carbon dioxide. <br />
What is the fire triangle<br />Model for understanding the ingredients necessary for fires.<br />
What is activation energy<br />Energy that must overcome in order for a chemical reaction to occur<br />
Why is heat/energy a necessary part of the fire triangle<br />Without enough sufficient heat, a fire cannot begin and will not continue further more.<br />
How is the cook top of your stove a real life example of fire triangle<br />The stove needs heat, oxygen and fuel to make the stove light up<br />
What is a combustion Engine?<br />The internal combustion engine is an engine in which combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer in a combustion chamber<br />
How does a combustion engine work?<br />An internal combustion engine fuel is burned inside the engine in which is known as a combustion chamber. The combustion chamber is an enclosed space where gasoline goes. Ones the gas of the confine gasoline expands, it produces energy.<br />
How are NASCAR engines different from street car engines that allow them to operate at much higher speeds?<br />The racers use a different engine block, pistons, alternators, and suspensions<br />
How does nitrous oxide help engines perform better?<br />When vaporizes, nitrous oxide provides a cooling effect on the intake air.<br />When you reduce the intake air temp., u increase the airs density, and this provides even more oxygen inside the cylinder. <br />
Example of cheating NASCAR in which something was done illegally to increase the combustion performance of the engine<br />When a NASCAR fails to pass an inspections because it gave them an advantage over everyone else.<br />
