    What are the heat physics of burning wood?

    Is it just a valance bond jump of excited electrons like lght?

    Flame? Followed by heat? Hopefully not followed by the smell of burning hair! :gulp:

    I don't know if its physics or a freak of nature, but wife approval

    Hopefully smoke goes up the chimney

    the amount of heat delivered measuring surface temps at 450 deggrees increases 100% when elevated to 600 drgrees

    Do a Google on "Wood Gasification". There's lots of very detailed sites about how wood burns and what's really happening.

    I found it quite interesting.
