combustion

 [kom-bus´chun]
rapid oxidation with emission of heat.

com·bus·tion

(kom-bŭs'chŭn),
Burning, the rapid oxidation of any substance accompanied by the production of heat and light.
[L. comburo, pp. -bustus, to burn up]

combustion

/com·bus·tion/ (kom-bus´chun) rapid oxidation with emission of heat.

combustion

[kəmbus′chen]
the process of burning or oxidation, which may be accompanied by light and heat. Oxygen itself does not burn, but it supports combustion. The rate of combustion is influenced by both oxygen concentration and its partial pressure.
