A suspension in the air of small particles produced by combustion. A transition to haze may occur when smoke particles have traveled great distances (25 to 100 statute miles or more) and when the larger particles have settled out and the remaining particles have become widely scattered through the atmosphere.
(1) An aerosol of particles usually but not necessarily solid, formed from combustion or sublimation. (2) Carbon or soot particles less than 0.1 micron in size which result from incomplete combustion of carbonaceous materials such as coal, oil and tobacco.
Smoke consists of carbon or soot particles or tarry droplets less than 0.1 micrometer in size, and suspended in air, which results from the incomplete combustion of carbonaceous materials such as coal or oil.
A form of air pollution consisting primarily of particulate matter (ie particles released by combustion). Other components of smoke include gaseous air pollutants such as hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen, and carbon monoxide. Sources of smoke may include fossil fuel combustion, agricultural burning, and other combustion processes.
A suspension of small liquid or solid particles in air. Smoke may be used as a filling for ordnance such as bombs, projectiles, and grenades. As part of ordnance nomenclature, the term signifies that it is intended to produce smoke of the type(s) or color(s) indicated.
An air suspension (aerosol) of particles, originating from combustion or sublimination. Carbon or soot particles less than 0.1 u in size result from incomplete combustion of carbonaceous materials such as coal or oil. Smoke generally contains droplets as well as dry particles. Tobacco, for instance, produces a wet smoke composed of minute tarry droplets.
A combination of gases, carbon particles, and other products of incomplete combustion hindering respiration and obscuring visibility and access to the seat of a fire. Coping with smoke is one of the tasks for which firefighters require special training and experience.
A disperse system of particles generally less than 5 micron in size. Smokes are of low vapor pressure and are formed by, for example, volatilisation and condensation, oxidation, photochemical action or electric and mechanical pulverisation.
Do to all the chemicals and preservatives added to commercial cigarettes, cigarette smoke is probably one of the world's most complex and debated mixtures. It has also been extensively studied with conflicting results depending on who is doing the research. According to British American Tobacco, tobacco, like any natural substance "contains thousands of different constituents (approximately 2,500 have been identified in tobacco). Approximately 4,000 constituents are formed when the tobacco burns, at varying temperatures with varying concentrations of oxygen. Many of these are found in very low concentrations". What is unsure to us is whether the testing was done before or after the commericial cigarette industry processed the tobacco plant with their many diverse chemicals. Native American Tobacco contains no added chemicals. Native American cigarettes are 100% all natural. And like anything that burns, Native American tobacco products, as do commerical cigarettes, contain carbon monoxide in their cigarette smoke.
1. Foreign particulate matter in the atmosphere resulting from combustion processes; a type of lithometeor. When smoke is present, the disk of the sun at sunrise and sunset appears very red, and during the daytime has a reddish tinge. Smoke that has come a great distance from its source, such as from forest fires, usually has a light grayish or bluish color and is evenly distributed in the upper air. See smog, haze. 2. Applied to some types of fog. See sea smoke.
Small particles produced by combustion that are suspended in the air. A transition to haze may occur when the smoke particles have traveled great distance (25 to 100 miles or more), and when the larger particles have settled out. The remaining particles become widely scattered through the atmosphere. It is reported as "FU" in an observation and on the METAR.
A type of emission resulting from incomplete combustion and consisting predominantly of small gas borne particles of combustible material present in sufficient quantity to be observable independently of the presence of other solids in the gas stream.
An air suspension of aerosol particles which can be solid or liquid, formed from vaporization and condensation, such as welding smoke, oil smoke from machining, etc. Particles are less than 1 micron in diameter.
To expose fresh food to smoke from a wood fire for a prolonged period of time. Traditionally used for preservation purposes, smoking is now a means of giving flavor to food. Smoking tends to dry the food, kills bacteria, deepens color and gives food a smoky flavor. The duration of smoking varies from 20 minutes to several days. The most commonly used woods are beech, oak and chestnut to which aromatic essences are often added. Small home smokers are now available.
to cure or cook foods imparting a smoky flavor by placing over heated wood chips in a sealed cooking vessel. Hot smoking will cook the food, cold smoking only imparts the smoke flavor and does not cook the food.
The visible products of combustion rising above a fire. A term often used when reporting a fire or probable fire in its initial stages. In fire management the following types of smoke are recognized: Drift Smoke â€“ Smoke that has drifted from its origin and has lost any original billow form. Intermittent Smoke â€“ Smoke that becomes visible occasionally. Smoke Column â€“ Smoke and other gases that form a column-shaped mass above a fire, characterized by sharply defined, billowed edges. Note Convection Column.
Smoke is an American independent film released in 1995. It was produced by Bob and Harvey Weinstein and directed by Wayne Wang and Paul Auster (who also wrote the screenplay). Among others, it features Harvey Keitel, William Hurt, Victor Argo, Forest Whitaker, Ashley Judd, Stockard Channing and Harold Perrineau Jr. in the cast.
"Smoke" is the fourth and final single from Natalie Imbruglia's debut album Left of the Middle. It was released on 11 October 1998 and contained a number of remixes. The single reached number 5 in the UK but barely made the top 50 in Australia, peaking at 42.
Smoke was a widely acclaimed band from the Cabbagetown neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia which dissolved in 1999 with the death of writer/singer Benjamin. Benjamin is the subject of Peter Sillen Jem Cohen's film Benjamin Smoke (2000). The group formed during the demise of the Opal Foxx Quartet, starting with Benjamin, Bill Taft, Brian Halloran, and Todd Butler.
Locomotive fireman. Smoker is engine or firebox. Smoking 'em or running on smoke orders is a dangerous method, now obsolete, of running a train from one station or siding to another without orders from the dispatcher. You moved cautiously, continually watching for the smoke of any train that might be approaching you on the same track.
