Hey guys, I have an unusual question in my mind and I think you all will think I am a crack after it. Fire- One element of nature. Power to destroy or create anything and everything. What is it actually. We have seen from ancient times the importance of fire. But what exactly is it. the red-yellow-orange flames you see when you burn anything, the flame of candle, flame of a match stick, flame of a wildfire, of LPGs, what exactly is the flame made of. When it comes to air or water or earth you can justify what they are made up of. I want to know the configuration of fire.
Like air is mixture of gases
water is a mixture of various elements and compounts primarily H2o
Earth is silica

Fire is the result of a chemical reaction.When ignition point of fuel is reached ,combustion initiates & flames are produced. Flames consist primarily of carbon dioxide, water vapor, oxygen and nitrogen.Fire emits heat and light. In order for combustion and fire to occur, three things must be present: fuel, oxygen and energy (usually in the form of heat).Yellow flames are oxidising,blue ones reducing.
once ignition point is reached..its a chain reaction till fuel is exhausted ..
Chemistry lab teacher had explained this during practicals...
