At what temperature does Petroleum burn? Can you name any other common house hold oils which burn, and at what temperature? I'm also interested in the fuel you use to start a campfire with coal.
0xDEADBEEF said:Here you go: flashpoints and autoignition temperatures http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_point as well as flame temperatures http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adiabatic_flame_temperature All oils burn, as the second link shows most will burn around 1950°C hot.
The ignition temperature of Petroleum, also known as its auto-ignition temperature, is typically between 400-500 degrees Celsius (750-930 degrees Fahrenheit). However, this can vary depending on the specific composition and purity of the Petroleum.
No, Petroleum will not catch fire at room temperature (around 25 degrees Celsius or 77 degrees Fahrenheit). It requires a much higher temperature, typically above 400 degrees Celsius, to ignite.
The ignition temperature of Petroleum is generally higher than other common fuels, such as gasoline or diesel. Gasoline, for example, has an ignition temperature of around 250-280 degrees Celsius (480-540 degrees Fahrenheit).
The ignition temperature of Petroleum can be affected by several factors, including the composition and purity of the Petroleum, the presence of impurities or contaminants, and the concentration of oxygen in the surrounding environment.
No, the flash point of Petroleum is the temperature at which it will give off enough vapor to ignite in the presence of an ignition source. This is typically lower than the ignition temperature, which is the temperature at which the Petroleum will spontaneously ignite without an external ignition source.
