             B) KINDLING F.  : occupy 2-20sqcm/gm.
             C) BULK  F.         : occupy 0.04-2sqcm/gm.
2) LIQUID FUEL :   PETROL, DIESEL, KEROSENE ETC..            
            A) LIGHTER THEN WATER : which has density less then water(water density= 1000kg/m3)

            B) HEAVIER THEN WATER: have density greater then water..                                                                                                                    e.g CARBON DI-DISULPHIDE.(CS2 = 1300KG/cube M).

          

            C) MISCIBLE IN WATER : which mix in water.. e.g  ALCOHOL.

 

3) GASEOUS FUEL : LPG, CNG, HYDROGEN..
