Discuss the specific cases of ignition temperature.

Dear student,

Ignition temperature refers to the minimum temperature at which a substance that is flammable such as air or gas, must be heated before it begins burning without the source of the heat. This temperature is a major determinant in setting the safety standards for low volatile products such as lubricating oil, diesel oil, and fuel oil.

Some specific ignitions temperatures are as follows- 

Substance Ignition temperature
White phosphorus 35-degree Celcius
Petrol 246-degree Celcius
Kerosene  220-degree Celcius
Diesel 210-degree Celcius
Coal 454-degree Celcius
