Can you please tell me what the difference is between these two? or...
Are agent and medium synonyms in this context?
It's a safety data sheet...
The exact context is the following:
Suitable extinguishing media (or agent? ) [/COLOR][/COLOR]: carbon-dioxide (CO2), extinguishing powder, water spray,
fire-fighting foam, sand.
Unsuitable extinguishing media (or agent): Do not use direct water jets on the burning product; they
could cause splattering and spread the fire.
Simultaneous use of foam and water on the same surface is to be avoided as water destroys
By context I meant, fire extinguisher stuff :)
Thank you! Saw that page already but still not convinced... I've seen other pages that were confusing :(
