A mixture of oxygen and ethyne is burnt for welding. Can you tell why a mixture of ethyne and air is not used?


A mixture of ethyne and air is not used for welding because the burning of ethyne in air produces a sooty flame (due to incomplete combustion) which is not hot enough to melt metals for welding.
