Energy from Burning Fuels
When fuels burn they release heat energy and light energy to the surroundings in exothermic reactions known as combustion reactions.
For example, propane gas tanks are commonly sold on petrol station forecourts. These gas bottles have a wide variety of uses including portable heating and cooking for caravans and barbecues.
When propane burns in a plentiful supply of oxygen, it produces both carbon dioxide and water. This change can be represented by a word equation or a formula equation.
