      Acetylene:

      Acetylene is lighter than air with a density being approximately
      1.25 grams per liter. The ideal acetylene mix is 65 ml per liter of
      air. Acetylene belongs to the group of hydrocarbons known as alkenes.
      The chemical formula for acetylene is C2H4. Its chemical structure is

      H H
      \ /
      C=C
      / \
      H H



      The chemical equation for the combustion of acetylene is the
      following:
      C2H4 + 3O2 -> 2H2O +2CO2

      This fuel is extremely dangerous and should not be used because it
      has a reputation to spontaneously combust with the oxygen in the air.
      This fuel however would be the best fuel for the explosive properties
      it possesses if it could be handle safely. With that said don't
      use
      acetylene.

        Acetylene is not lighter than air it is heaver than air i have used O2
        and Acetylene in a trash bag during the 4th of july the trash bag
        dident float up into the air. and i take a lot of safty into my
        planing of each one. dont try it. Acetylene only auto inginets when
        over 15psi. the danger is that it takes only a static spark to set it
        off. that is not much. and the persher genrated by the gas buring is a
        lot.
