The provisions of the physics of combustion indicate that when the pressure of the oxidizing gaseous medium, in this case air, decreases, the combustion of materials and substances becomes less intense. When the pressure of the oxidizing gaseous medium is less than the pressure limit of combustion of materials and substances, denoted as Plim, combustion at a given concentration of oxygen in a gaseous environment becomes impossible.
