Why are gasoline vapors more flammable than liquid gasoline?
Oxygen is required for gasoline to burn. There is far more oxygen in gasoline vapor than in liquid gasoline. This is why the flame is on top of a puddle of gas. Just the vapor is burning.

Diesel costs more then gasoline because it uses more petroleum to make it. Also, diesel costs more then gasoline because it has about 20% more energy then the same amount of g…asoline.
water weighs 8 lbs / gal gas weighs 5 lbs per gal.
Hahaha. Are you in my chemistry class? and I'm pretty sure it's not a solid, it's a liquid but not pure liquid, I'm sure it's not a vapor, because that's like steam and stuff.… So I'm guessing it's a gas
Gasoline can be a liquid and a gas, I am not sure about a solid though.
Yes. Americans will often refer to the liquid fuel gasoline as "gas" for short, which might be confusing to residents of other countries. It is often known outside the U.S. as… "petrol."
The flammablilty of liquids is measured by flash point this is the minimum temperature in which a spark will ignite it. Gasoline which is a mixture has a flash point of around… 0 degrees C. One of the most flammable liquids, Diethyl ether has a flash point of -45 degrees so is much more flammable than gasoline.
Oxygen itself is not flammable at all. Oxygen is what is needed for flammable materials such as gasoline to burn.
Water has higher viscosity. There are many types of gasoline, but all have lower viscosity than water.
Gasoline is a liquid, gas is a vapor.
Gasoline has a less boiling point (72 degree Celsius) While water has a bigger boiling point (100 degree Celsius)
yes gasoline is flammable. thats why if you have a car accident and you are still in the car and it chucks into the pumps then your car will ghet on fire. hope this helps i l…ike squishy noses
