Charcoal is a material used in drawing and art, made from charred wood. The exact composition of charcoal can vary depending on the type of wood used, but generally it is made from slender branches of willow, poplar, vine, or hazel.

To make charcoal, the branches are burned at a high temperature in the absence of air to remove moisture and organic matter. The process of carbonization leaves traces of lignin and cellulose which make up the charred material used for drawing.

In summary, the composition of charcoal is primarily carbon and traces of lignin and cellulose from the charred wood
