what is a complete and incomplete combustion reaction ??

  • chemistry -

    A complete combustion occurs when there is sufficient oxygen to react completely with the other material; i.e.., when the material being oxidized is the limiting reagent. An incomplete combustion occurs when there is insufficient oxygen to burn the other material completely; i.e., oxygen is the limiting reagent.
