Name: Date: School: Facilitator: 4.03 Combustion Lab Directions: Go to PBS: On Fire and complete the virtual lab. First, read the introduction. After you have read the introduction, work through the four simulations that deal with combustion, burning, and flames. Finally, answer the following questions about what you learned in the simulations. 1. What is the difference between a basic oxidation reaction and combustion? oxidation rate is so slow that the temperature of rusting area increases just slightly 2. What 3 things are needed for combustion to take place? oxygen, heat fuel 3. What supplies the heat needed to strike the match? friction 4. What is the threshold temperature at which oxygen will rapidly unite with the fuel called? ignition temp 5. Why does the fire spread from the head of the match to the stick after being ignited?
