Is a flame really a plasma? Well it depends on your definition of plasma, but there are certainly ions in a flame, formed as molecules collide with each other at high speed, sometimes knocking electrons off of their atoms.

Special thanks to the Palais de la Decouverte for helping me perform this experiment. Using tens of thousands of volts on two metal plates, we created a strong electric field around the plasma. This pulled positive ions in one direction and negative ions in the other direction elongating the flame horizontally and causing it to flicker like a papillon (butterfly). Then we showed that much longer sparks can be made through the flame than through air since the ions increase the conductivity.

Candle flame meaning & Candle fire interpretation for Magic Spells. Candle reading

The significance of candle flame reading behavior during casting spells - The magic of candles. When casting any spells, carefully monitor the behavior of the candle flame. It is important. The candle reading is easily lit, its flame is calm and confident - this means you have chosen the right place for the ritual, and everything will contribute to your magic. Problem lighting candles - the interpretation of this behavior candle flame reading is the weakening of your magic by external forces, which will by any means interfere with your work and the result you want to achieve. If during the ritual the candle flame was weak and small, like about to go out, then there are different obstacles and obstacles for the favorable development of the situation. Candle fire meaning - A swaying or dancing flame is interpreted as a tense situation with which you are working. You will not be able to influence factors or things that will continue to inflame passions and heat up the situation. Candle fire interpretation In a love spell for two candles, symbolizing two people, one candle can burn much stronger and brighter than the other, which is the flame of a candle reading which means a stronger impact and the power of one person over another. If both candles have a flame jumping, then people are very indifferent to each other - this implies it can be like passion and love, and hatred with anger.

Today's video is another in the candle reading series. This time on flame reading, allowing you to read the candle without having to burn it all the way down. I love this form of candle reading and it has become my most used method. Hopefully, this video can help others to read candles in this way xx

Why does a Flame always Point Upward? | #aumsum

A candle flame heats the air surrounding it. Hot air, being less dense or lighter, rises. To take its place, surrounding heavier or dense cold air rushes in. It also in turn gets heated and rises. This continuous cycle of hot air rising, cold air rushing in, getting heated, causes a swirling effect, thus making the flame always point upward.

Lisa and Josh make a candle relight as if by magic. They investigate how long it takes for a covered candle to go out, and find out why a candle can keep burning for a longer time in a larger jar than in a small one.
In this fun, free science experiment to do at home with young children, Lisa shows Josh how to relight a candle without touching the wick. When a candle is blown out, the wick stays hot, and wax continues to be drawn up through it before evaporating. This wax gas above the candle can be relit, meaning that a flame will appear to jump from Lisa’s lighter to the candle wick.
Josh times how long it takes for candles to go out when covered by different sized jars. A candle flame is the result of a chemical reaction between wax gas and oxygen in the air. When you trap the candle in a jar, it only has a limited amount of oxygen. Josh finds out that in larger jars, there’s more oxygen so the candle can keep burning for longer, but that the flame will eventually go out.

Three zones of a candle's flame | Combustion | Physics

In this activity a common wax candle is lit in order to study the zones of its yellow flame. The video demonstrates that there are three zones, the coolest dark inner zone in which there is no combustion, the warmer and intermediate luminous yellow zone with incomplete combustion of the wax and the hottest zone on the outside, which is barely visible and blue in colour. The outermost zone is hottest because complete combustion of wax occurs in it. A flame is the visible gaseous part of a fire. It is important to remember that there are parts of a flame that are not visible and still very hot.

This book introduces modern readers to Michael Faraday’s great nineteenth-century lectures on The Chemical History of a Candle. This companion to the YouTube series contains supplemental material to help readers appreciate Faraday’s key insight that “there is no more open door by which you can enter into the study of science than by considering the physical phenomena of a candle.” Through a careful examination of a burning candle, Faraday’s lectures introduce readers to the concepts of mass, density, heat conduction, capillary action, and convection currents. They demonstrate the difference between chemical and physical processes, such as melting, vaporization, incandescence, and all types of combustion. And the lectures reveal the properties of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, including their relative masses and the makeup of the atmosphere. The lectures wrap up with a grand, and startling, analogy: by understanding the chemical behavior of a candle the reader can grasp the basics of respiration. To help readers understand Faraday’s key points this book has an “Essential Background” section that explains in modern terms how a candle works, introductory guides for each lecture written in contemporary language, and seven student activities with teaching guides.

What is the ideal candle flame height?

Achieve the perfect candle flame height with these simple tips!

The ideal flame height all depends on the size of your wick for the particular candle vessel you're using. Having too small of a wick in your candle can result in tunneling, where the burn pool doesn't reach the edges of your candle vessel. Too large of a wick will create black smoke and an unsafe flame height. To achieve the ideal flame height, make sure your wick size matches the size of your candle container and creates an even burn pool.
