List conditions under which combustion can take place.


Combustion is a chemical reaction in which a material combines with oxygen to produce heat. Fuel, air (to supply oxygen) and heat (to raise the temperature of the fuel beyond the ignition temperature). The ignition temperature is the lowest temperature at which a substance can catch fire. As long as the temperature of a flammable substance is lower than its ignition temperature, it will not catch fire or burn.
