The sun will not run out of oxygen, for the simple reason that it does not use oxygen to burn. It is lit by the sun is not a chemical burn. This is nuclear fusion. Don’t think that’s in the sun like a giant funeral pyre. It’s more like a giant hydrogen bomb.
By default, the carbon flow rate of the carbon atoms in the fuel to move in the vicinity of the oxygen atoms in the air to combine to form carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. At the same time, the hydrogen atoms in the fuel will be bound to the oxygen atoms of the water molecules. Chemical reactions often occur in the carbon-based brand, but the most important thing is the burning of carbon and hydrogen atoms. This burning releases energy, which we perceive as heat and light from the fire. The vast majority of the fires that we’re in the day to day lives of the coal burning, fire, flame in the oven, candle, flame, grill, fire pits, fires, gas stoves, heat registers, stoves, gas burning engines, etc., etc. It is important to keep in mind is that the combustion of carbon is required in the dishwasher. When there is no oxygen on the left, and the coal is burned, it stops working.
