    I think carbon .but in touch heat it will be hydrogen. ...is it correct

    Here is a list of adiabatic (no heat losses) flame temperatures for equivalence ratio 1 (meaning oxygen and fuel are present in stoichiometric ratios and all oxygen and all fuel is burned, this gives the highest flame temperature)


    The adiabatic flame temperatures can be computed using the formation enthalpies of the species involved in the chemical reaction.
