COMPLETE AND INCOMPLETE COMBUSTION

HideShow resource information
What is Combustion?
Hydrocarbon that react with oxygen in air when they burn
1 of 11
What are features of a complete combustion?
-Only Carbon Dioxide and water is produced -energy is given out
2 of 11
When does complete combustion happen?
When there is a plentiful supply of air or oxygen
3 of 11
Give an example of a formula
Methane + Oxygen--->Carbon Dioxide + Water
4 of 11
When does Incomplete combustion happen?
When there is a limited amount of oxygen
5 of 11
What are features of an incomplete combustion?
-Water is produced -Energy is given out(less) -Carbon monoxide /carbon is produced
6 of 11
What can incomplete combustion cause in appliances?
They can cause problems if appliances are poorly maintained or unventilated
