1 Explain a Combustion Reaction Combustion ReactionsExplain a Combustion Reaction
2 What is Combustion Reaction? Chemical reaction that involves oxygen and produces energy so rapidly that flames are created.
3 What are some real-life examples of combustion reactions? When people are or a candle.Or burn wood to make a fire.
4 How are combustion reactions used in our daily lives? People use fire everyday toPeople burning paper.Burning trash
5 How could you describe a combustion reaction to someone who didn't have chemistry a very good background in?Is a reaction in which oxygen reacts with another element or compound (generally a hydrocarbon) to produce energy in the form of heat and light.When organic molecules combust the reaction products are carbon dioxide and water.
6 2 Types of Chemical Reactions!!! CompleteClean combustion with a hydrocarbon produces carbon dioxide and waterIncompleteDirty combustion with a hydrocarbon produces carbon or carbon monoxide also carbon dioxide.
