  2. 2. 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 (for info & pic)<br />
  3. 3. What is combustion reaction? <br />A combustion reaction is when oxygen reacts with a substance and heat is released.http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_a_combustion_reaction<br /> http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/combustion.aspx<br />
  4. 4. What is a fire triangle?<br />Aka combustion triangle<br />A model that helps comprehend the ingredients essential for the majority of fires. <br />Displays the elements required: Heat <br />Oxidizing agent (oxygen)<br />Fuel<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_triangle- for info & pic<br />
  5. 5. What is activation energy? <br />The energy required to get a reaction in progress.<br />http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_activation_energy<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Activation_energy.svg<br />
  6. 6. Why is heat a necessary part of the fire triangle?<br />With out heat a fire can not prolong.<br />Heat can only be taken away by a substance which shrinks the amount of heat accessible to the fire reaction.<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_triangle<br />http://www.fotosearch.com/photos-images/heat.html<br />
  7. 7. How is the cook top of your stove (not electric) a real life example of a fire triangle? <br />Because the same three elements in a fire triangle are required<br />http://www.consumersearch.com/ranges-reviews<br />
  8. 8. What is a combustion engine? <br />A combustion engine is an engine in which the fuel is burned within the engine rather than in an external furnace.<br />http://www.answers.com/topic/internal-combustion-engine<br />http://www.howstuffworks.com/engine.htm<br />
  9. 9. How does a combustion engine work?<br />Fuel such as gasoline fills a chamber and is then ignited by a spark plug causing a small explosion which makes the engine run.<br />http://www.wisegeek.com/how-does-an-internal-combustion-engine-work.htm<br />http://www.fotosearch.com/clip-art/combustion-engine.html<br />
  10. 10. In terms of combustion.. how are NASCAR engines different from street car engines that allow them to operate at a much higher speed?<br />The engine in race cars are bigger (V-8)engines and some parts are custom made. The race car values open earlier and longer to take in more air which is then packed into the cylinders. They have a more intense ignition system so the spark timing is more powerful. Other parts, such as oil pumps, steering pumps are designed to sustain high speeds and temperatures. <br />http://auto.howstuffworks.com/question588.htm<br />http://www.theinsidegroove.com/pics/raceweek-daytona05-shootout/html/image-03.html<br />
  11. 11. How does nitrous oxide help engines perform better?<br />Nitrous Oxide is used to increase combustion by causing the engine to burn more fuel and air.<br /> This gas is not flammable but delivers more oxygen.<br />http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Use+of+Nitrous+Oxide+Systems+in+Vehicle+Engines-a01073938153<br />nitrous oxidehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitrous_oxide<br />
  12. 12. Cheating in NASCAR<br />DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 15, 2007 <br />NASCAR Rocked By Cheating Scandal<br />Michael Waltrip Apologizes For His Team&apos;s Use Of Fuel Additive; <br />Four Other Teams Penalized.<br />Michael Waltrip apologized Thursday for his team&apos;s role in NASCAR&apos;s biggest cheating scandal, saying he was so embarrassed he almost pulled out of Daytona 500 preparations.The two-time Daytona 500 winner, who lost two key crew members Wednesday when NASCAR penalized his team for using a fuel additive, said he had to be talked into racing by his wife and Toyota officials who are seething that Waltrip tainted their Nextel Cup debut.&quot;I didn&apos;t want to damage the integrity of the sport further by going out there and having people think, &apos;What&apos;s he doing out there?&quot;&apos; Waltrip said. &quot;I came real close to not running today.&quot;Waltrip needs to race his way into NASCAR&apos;s premier event in a qualifying race Thursday.After his car failed inspection Sunday, Waltrip said he was devastated when his 9-year-old wondered why her father had cheated.&quot;That will hurt you pretty bad,&quot; Waltrip said. &quot;I&apos;m ready to bear all responsibility for what happened. You can&apos;t hurt me any worse than I am right now.&quot;Waltrip&apos;s team was one of five busted for breaking the rules before the season opener — the sport&apos;s most significant crackdown on cheating and a clear message the sanctioning body no longer will tolerate teams breaking the rules.&quot;It&apos;s been rough on everybody; we&apos;re here to celebrate a race,&quot; said NASCAR competition director Robin Pemberton. &quot;Instead, we&apos;re busy dealing with all of this.&quot;Waltrip&apos;s crew chief and team director were suspended indefinitely after a fuel additive was found during inspection. But Waltrip, docked 100 points, will be allowed to participate in Thursday&apos;s races that determine the field for the 500.&quot;I don&apos;t think we&apos;ll ever put this behind us, but we&apos;ll try to do better in the future,&quot; Waltrip said.David Hyder, his crew chief, was thrown out of the garage and fined $100,000 — the largest monetary fine in NASCAR history. Team director Bobby Kennedy also was kicked out. Scott Eggleston, who guided Waltrip to his 2001 Daytona 500 victory, will serve as Waltrip&apos;s crew chief.Waltrip blamed an unidentified individual or individuals within his team, adding that no one had been fired.&quot;We haven&apos;t fired anyone, nor do we plan on firing anyone until we know what happened,&quot; he said. &quot;We&apos;re aggressively trying to find out what happened.&quot;He emphasized Toyota had nothing to do with his team&apos;s actions.<br />http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/02/15/sportsline/main2480661.shtml<br />
