Combustion Reactions Power Point

  1. 1. Combustion Reactions PowerPoint <br />By Cedrick Calalay<br />Period 6<br />
  2. 2. What are the different types of chemical reactions<br />Combustion<br />Synthesis<br />Decomposition<br />Single displacement<br />Double displacement<br />Acid-base<br /><br />
  3. 3. What is a combustion reaction?<br />It’s a chemical reaction between an oxidant and a fuel source.<br /><br />
  4. 4. What is the fire triangle?<br />It is a triangle that shows you what you would need to form a fire.<br /><br />
  5. 5. What is activation energy? <br />It’s the energy that is needed to create a chemical reaction. <br /><br />
  6. 6. Why is heat/energy a necessary part of the fire triangle?<br />Without the energy (heat, oxygen, and fuel) you would not be able to create a fire.<br /><br /><br />
  7. 7. How is the cooktop of your stove (not electric) a real-life example of a fire triangle?<br />When a stove is turned on, the gas is rushed and meets with the energy and ignites to creat a fire.<br /><br /><br />
  8. 8. What is a combustion engine?<br />It is when fuel is mixed with air in a combustion chamber.<br /><br />
  9. 9. How does a combustion engine work?<br />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.<br /><br /><br />
  10. 10. In terms of combustion, how are NASCAR engines different from street car engines that allow them to operate at much higher speeds?<br />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.<br /><br />
  11. 11. How does nitrous oxide help engines perform better?<br />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. <br /><br /><br />
  12. 12. Provide 1 documented example of cheating in NASCAR in which something was done illegally to increase the combustion performance of the engine<br />Michael Waltrip, a NASCAR racer’s car was found with a additive fuel in his cars fuel and was DQed and fined $100,000. <br /><br /><br />
