Lower explosive limit definition

Lower explosive limit means the lowest per cent by volume of a mixture of explosive gases in air that will propagate a flame at twenty-five degrees Celsius and atmospheric pressure.
Lower explosive limit. (LEL) means the concentration of a compound in air below which a flame will not propagate if the mixture is ignited.
Lower explosive limit means the lowest concentration by volume of a mixture of explosive gases in air that will propagate a flame at 25°C and at atmospheric pressure.
