Magnesium reacts with oxygen producing Magnesium oxide.
Explanation: Charcoal burns in air producing carbon dioxide and water.
Explanation: A chemical process in which a substance reacts with oxygen producing heat is called combustion.
Explanation: The head of the safety match is made from antimony trisulphide and potassium chlorate. The rubbing surface has powdered glass and a little red phosphorous.
When the matches is struck against the rubbing surface, some red phosphorous get converted into white phosphorous which reacts with the potassium chlorate in the match ignite antimony trisulphide and start the combustion.
Explanation: A substance reacts with oxygen producing carbon dioxide and water during combustion. Combustion is a chemical process.
