Spontaneous combustion

  Spontaneous combustion    04/06/16

 

Spontaneous combustion is when an object catches fire through the effect of self-heating. First, objects with low ignition temperatures begin to release heat. If such heat is unable to escape, then the heat re-enters the system. The combustion temperature will rise, and eventually if ignition point is reached and an oxidizer is present, then spontaneous combustion will occur. Hay is an example of an object that reaches combustion quickly.
