History, Modern Theory, Combustion Mechanics, Applications, Environmental Issues
Combustion is the chemical term for a process known more commonly as burning. It is certainly one of the earliest chemical changes noted by humans, at least partly because of the dramatic effects it has on materials. Today, the mechanism by which combustion takes place is well understood and is more correctly defined as a form of oxidation that occurs so rapidly that noticeable heat and light are produced.
