How Fires Get Extinguished: A Short Paper
The scientific name for burning is "combustion." In most cases oxygen from the air combines with some material that can burn. This produces heat. If the process takes place rapidly, we may see flames or an intense glow which is called fire. Chemically during combustion, two atoms of oxygen from the air combine...
