  The MSDS HyperGlossary: Flash Point
Flash point is the lowest temperature at which a liquid can form an ignitable mixture in air near the surface of the liquid.
For example, gasoline has a flash point of -40 degrees C (-40 F) and is more flammable than ethylene glycol (antifreeze) which has a flash point of 111 degrees C (232 F).
C.) or higher, an additional flash point determination shall be run on a sample of the liquid evaporated to 90 percent of its original volume, and the lower value of the two tests shall be considered the flash point of the material.

  Flash point - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The flash point of a liquid is the lowest temperature at which it can form an ignitable mixture with air.
The flash point is often used as one descriptive characteristic of liquid fuel, but it is also used to describe liquids that are not used intentionally as fuels.
A commonly used device for measuring the flash point of liquid fuels is the Pensky-Martens closed cup.

 Chemical process engineering - Flash point
Flash point is a measure of the temperature to which the fluid (generally a fuel) must be heated to produce an ignitable vapour-air mixture above the liquid when exposed to an open flame.
Flash point by closed testers are normally employed for fuel distillate hydrocarbons such as kerosine, gas oils, etc., and for residual fuels, because these procedures more normally approach the conditions of storage of fuel in tanks.
Flash Point is for the temperature when the fluid itself gives off enough vapor in the right percentages to ignite with a small spark.

 Urban Legends Reference Pages: Automobiles (Flash Point)
the prize to be won is something as potentially significant as beating a breathalyzer test or keeping points off their driver's licenses, or as trivial as being able to zip through traffic a little faster than other motorists.
A slightly different dynamic is at work in the claim that flashing your high beams at a traffic signal will cause it to change from red to green more quickly: Many motorists have tried it and discovered that it seemingly performs as advertised, thereby documenting the validity of the claim.
Since advance sensors are generally placed at a point about the same distance away from intersections as the point where drivers start flashing their high beams to influence upcoming signals, it can easily appear to the unknowing that such flashing does indeed cause lights to change.

 Oil on Fire - Flash Point, Fire Point   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The oil flashes because a flammable mixture results when it is heated sufficiently, causing vapors to emerge and mix with oxygen in the air.
The flash point temperature of an oil corresponds roughly to a vapor pressure of 3-5 mm Hg.
As the name implies, the fire point is the temperature at which a sustained flame results (longer than four seconds)." Naturally, the fire point is always going to be higher than the flash point.

To understand the dangers associated with flammable liquids, it is useful to be familiar with the terms used to describe their chemical properties.
Flash point - The temperature at which a particular flammable liquid gives off vapors (vaporizes) and therefore can ignite.
Gasoline is highly volatile due to its low flash point and easily vaporizes when exposed to air.

 Nanotubes reach flash point (April 2002) - News - PhysicsWeb
Immediately after a flash, the researchers found that ‘hot spots’ appeared on the single-walled nanotubes and then spread through the sample until it was completely burnt.
When the nanotubes were exposed to the flash in air, the carbon they contained burnt and escaped as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, leaving a residue of oxidized nickel and iron, which are used in the production of nanotubes.
But when the nanotubes were ‘flashed’ in an atmosphere of helium – which does not support combustion – the team found that the carbon rearranged itself into single-layered structures with conical tips, known as ‘nanohorns’.

 BUNKERWORLD -- Flash Point: Definition -- Bunkers, Marine Fuel, Bunkering, Bunker Prices, BunkerNews, Suppliers, ...
The flash point of a fuel is the temperature at which vapour given off will ignite when an external flame is applied under specified test conditions.
A flash point is defined to minimise fire risk during normal storage and handling.
Even when residual fuels are at a temperature below their measured flash point, they are capable of producing light hydrocarbons in the tank headspace, such that the vapour composition may be near to or within the flammable range.

 Canon Letter on Flash
* In the case of FEL with the D30, flash exposure is always measured from the center of the picture area, with a metering zone that roughly corresponds to the partial metering circle in the viewfinder.
Once the center focusing point has picked up a subject, the outer focusing points are activated and the D30 is then able to track subject movement from the center to the left or right as well as from near to far or vice versa.
When the D30 is set for automatic focusing point selection in One-Shot AF or AI Servo AF, E-TTL flash exposure tracks from point to point along with the AF system.

The flash point is reached when the test flame produces a distinct flicker or flash on the surface of the sample.
The seconds after the needle is released, the distance it penetrated the sample is read, to the nearest 0.01 centimeter, on the penetrometer dial.
The reported penetration is the average of at least three tests on the same material whose values do not differ more than four points between maximum and minimum.
