Dear Student

Carbon and its compounds undergo combustion to produce heat, the amount of heat released can be handled and used so they are used as fuels for most applications.

Carbon compounds are very easy to handle. Therefore, carbon and its compounds are used as fuels.

Carbon compounds are used as fuel because they burn with a clean flame and no smoke is produced.

Carbon compounds have higher calorific values, maximum ignition temperature and their combustion can be restrained. Hence, carbon and its compounds are a great source of fuel.

Carbon and their compounds give out a lot of heat, energy and light when they are burnt in air and this is mainly because carbon compounds have greater calorific values. Consequently, carbon and its compounds are used as fuels.
