Combustion Reaction

  1. 1. Combustion Reaction<br />By: Maricar Tamayo<br />Period 1/2<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 /><br />
  3. 3. 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 /><br /><br />
  4. 4. What is the fire triangle?<br />Fire oxygen- oxygen, heat, and fuel<br /><br /><br />
  5. 5. What is activation energy?<br />activation energy- the energy that an atomic system must acquire before a process (of a reaction) can occur.<br /><br /><br />
  6. 6. Why is heat/energy a necessary part of the fire triangle?<br />Because fire requires elements of heat/energy to continue burning.<br /><br /><br />
  7. 7. 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 /><br /><br />
  8. 8. 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 /><br /><br />
  9. 9. (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 /><br /><br />
  10. 10. 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 /><br /><br />
  11. 11. 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 /><br /><br />
  12. 12. 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 /><br /><br />
