Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Coal gas (also town gas and illumination gas) is a flammable gaseous fuel made by the destructive distillation of coal containing a variety of calorific gases including hydrogen, carbon monoxide, methane and volatile hydrocarbons together with small quantities of noncalorific gases such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen.  wikipedia 1) is absolutely correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thanks for posting the same link again..( 3times in this post already) Why is statement (3) correct?

mathslover
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0statement 3 is correct explanation : Nitrogen and Oxygen 0% – 3.3% at least this shows that oxygen is present in coal gas.. In the given components there, oxygen is the best gas responsible for flammability.

mathslover

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then, you're just assuming it's used to enhance flammability but not explaining it really.
