A matchstick has a stored chemical energy, at the point when the match is burns, it consumes and the synthetic energy in it produces heat energy and light energy. It is an exothermic reaction which is a chemical reaction to produce heat and raise the temperature of the quick environmental surroundings. Matches use sulfur and phosphate and binding compound held together by a friction. The oxygen and sulfur consume gradually, touching off the wood for a fire that endures sufficiently long to be light.
