When a Hydrocarbon Burns in Air What Component of Air Reacts?

Answer

When a hydrocarbon burns in air, the component of air that reacts is an oxidizing element such as fluorine or oxygen. This process is called combustion and it is a process of exothermic or burning chemical reactions between an oxidant and a fuel. This reaction leads to the change of chemical species and heat production.
