How is natural gas different from propane?

    Propane is only one of the mixture of gases that make up natural gas. They also have different chemicals properties. Propane turns to liquid at -46 F, which makes it easy to condense into portable containers. Propane is heavier than air, while natural gas is lighter than air. Both will dissipate into air, but as propane gas is denser, it tends to collect in the bottoms of rooms or containers and cause more of an explosive risk than natural gas, which just spreads out into the air. They ignite at the same temperature and perform similarly, but propane provides more energy per unit than natural gas does.
