Project #72518 - Modern Fires vs. Legacy Fires - Oxidation and Combustion

Unit III Project

For this assignment, conduct research on modern fires and legacy fires. From your research and from concepts in the textbook, compare and contrast a modern fire and a legacy fire. Search for videos of each type of fire. Include in your discussion a response to the following questions in regard to both the modern and legacy fire.

ï‚· When is oxidation not combustion?

ï‚· When is combustion not oxidation?

ï‚· What is the basic mechanism of fire spread?

Summarize your responses in a document that is two pages in length. To supplement your discussion and support your conclusions, you may use information from reputable, reliable journal articles, case studies, scholarly papers, and other sources that you feel are pertinent. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in proper APA style.

 

Though this is related more to firefighting, the concepts here seem to be more about chemistry and the undersatnding of such. Something that I was never very good at.
