Experiment Number: 4 Page | 21 Determination of Flash Point and Fire Point of Kerosene Department of Chemical Engineering and Polymer Science (CEP), Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), Sylhet- 3114, Bangladesh Abstract The flash point of a volatile material is the lowest temperature at which vapors of the material will ignite, given an ignition source. The flash point is a descriptive characteristic that is used to distinguish flammable liquids (such as petrol) from combustible liquids. The fire point of a fuel is the lowest temperature at which the vapor of that fuel will continue to burn for at least 5 seconds after ignition by an open flame. At the flash point, a lower temperature, a substance will ignite briefly, but vapor might not be produced at a rate to sustain the fire. ASTM D93 - 16 (Standard Test Methods for Flash Point by Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Tester) was followed. The result of Flash point and Fire point is 34°C and 40°C.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
