Abstract [en]

This investigation has Determinated some physical Properties of Charcoal from some wood Species (Quercus calliprinous, Quercus infectoria, Arbutus andrachne, Eucalyptus camaldulensis). The Charcoal of Quercus calliprinous has heavy weight, full of rents in its cross section toward the rays; the annual growth rings are not clear on it. It has coarse or rough surface because the bark was pasted on the wood after the stem had charted or carbonized. It needs five minuets to start lighting and keeps glowing for ten minuets, no smoke or smell and it remains firm after glowing. While the Charcoal of Arbutus andrachne is lighter than the Charcoal of Quercus calliprinous , its cross section is smooth and has a clear luster moreover  shows clearly annual growth rings. It gives sparks during its lighting and needs six minuets to have a total glowing and destroyed after lighting or combustion. The Charcoal of Quercus infectoria   has a medium weight to compare with the Charcoal of Quercus calliprinous, its cross section has a little luster and relative clearly annual growth rings and rays, and it needs eight minuets to begin lighting. The Charcoal of Eucalyptus camaldulensis has light weight too and lighting slowly, its cross section has a luster and unclearly annual growth rings and rays. It gives smoke and smell during its lighting. The results of physical properties have established that the Charcoal of Quercus calliprinous has the highest value for heat of combustion, but the value of heat of combustion for Charcoal of Quercus infectoria is higher than that for the Charcoal of Arbutus andrachne. The Charcoal of Eucalyptus camaldulensis has the lowest value for the heat of combustion. Therefore the Charcoal of Quercus calliprinous is considered the best type of charcoal and superior. The Charcoal of Eucalyptus camaldulensis has the highest value for the specific heat capacity. While the Charcoal of Quercus calliprinous shows the lowest value for the specific heat capacity. The specific heat capacity for Charcoal of Quercus infectoria is lower than that for the Charcoal of Arbutus andrachne.
