5 Combustion Combustion means burning or to burn. Combustion can be either complete or incompleteIncomplete combustion can be very dangerous!
6 Complete Combustion When a hydrocarbon is burned with lots of oxygen ExothermicEquation:Hydrocarbon + LOTS of carbon + wateroxygen dioxideEx: CH4 + 2O2 CO2 + 2H2O
7 Incomplete Combustion A hydrocarbon is burned with NOT ENOUGH oxygenExothermicEquation:Hydrocarbon + little carbon + water + carbon + carbonoxygen dioxide (soot) monoxideEx: 4CH4 + 6O2 CO2 + 8H2O + C + 2CO
