Combustion and Flame
In hydrocarbon fire extinguishers, CO2comes out in the form of

a) Vapour.
b) Foam.
c) Spray.
d) Droplets.



Answer
Solution
Correct Answer Is : Foam.
Solution Is : For fires involving electrical equipment and inflammable materials like petrol, carbon dioxide is the best extinguisher. Carbon dioxide being heavier than oxygen, covers the fire like a blanket. Since the contact between the fuel and oxygen is cut off, the fire is controlled.
The zone of no combustion is

a) The middle zone
b) Outermost zone
c) The base of the flame
d) Innermost zone.



Answer
Solution
Correct Answer Is : Innermost zone.
Solution Is : Here the wax vapours are unburnt as they do not get O2.
Example of rapid combustion is

b) Kerosene.
c) Wood.
d) LPG.



Answer
Solution
Correct Answer Is : LPG.
