  • Combustion
    • Combustion is an oxidation reaction. When fuels burn in air they combine with oxygen. The products of the reaction are carbon dioxide and water – energy is also released
    • Complete combustion equations:
    • Carbon dioxide can be detected using limewater – when carbon dioxide bubbles through it, the limewater turns milky
    • Complete combustion occurs when there is plenty of oxygen for the reaction
