Combustion Reaction Power Point

  1. 1. Combustion Reaction PowerPoint<br />By: BeyzaOzer<br />
  2. 2. Pictures (:<br />All pictures used in this PowerPoint are from google images. <br />
  3. 3. 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 />
  4. 4. What is a combustion reaction?<br />A combustion reaction happens when a fuel and an oxidant react. This produces heat or heat and light.<br /><br />
  5. 5. What is the fire triangle?<br />The fire triangle refers to oxygen, heat, and fuel.<br /><br />
  6. 6. What is activation energy?<br />The energy needed to get a reaction started (for it to occur) <br /><br />
  7. 7. Why is heat/energy a necessary part of the fire triangle?<br />Heat is important because it’s what helps set a spark for fire to begin and it also raises fuel temperature. Energy goes to fuel molecules and releases heat, light and other things.<br /><br />
  8. 8. How is the cooktop of your stove a real-life example of a fire triangle?<br />It’s an example because for a stove to function properly and make food it needs oxygen, heat and fuel.<br />
  9. 9. What is a combustion engine?<br />A combustion engine can be internal or external. It expands temperature and pressure for machines to go faster.<br /><br />
  10. 10. How does a combustion engine work?<br />When fuel enters the combustion chamber, it gets assorted with hot compacted air that has been used in past cycles. <br /><br />
  11. 11. How are NASCAR engines different from street car engines that allow them to operate at much higher speeds?<br />With NASCAR cars, almost every detail of the car is handmade. The bodies are built from sheet metal, the engines are assembled from a bare block and the frame is constructed from steel tubing. With regular cars, not as big of an engine is needed so they don’t go as fast.<br /><br />
  12. 12. How does nitrous oxide help engines perform better?<br />Nitrous oxide increases the engines horsepower and that makes the car go even faster. It doesn’t harm the engine at all, just exceeds its purpose. <br /><br />
  13. 13. Example of how cheating in NASCAR in which something was done illegally to increase the combustion performance of the engine<br />Michael Waltrip’s crew was using a fuel addictive which is illegal in racing. &quot;Whatever they would have said, I would accept because it was just a terrible mistake. I don&apos;t need to cheat to win this race. I&apos;ve done it before.” he says.<br /><br />
