    decided to candles containing dyes because the are most common. (Figure 1) Wax Different candles use different types of waxes in their candles. I found out that the most common candle wax used it paraffin which is a product of petroleum refining. Beeswax is also used in some countries but is very rare though it does have a growing overseas demand it still isn’t available in most countries. Beeswax however is a better option for candles as it is better for the environment. In this project I will be using paraffin candles as they are most common. Wick wicks/oxygen The wick is the cord or string that we light and use it to hold the flame. 99.9% of the time wicks are made with braided or rolled cotton. Once in a blue will their be something else used other than cotton. The size of the wick does affect the burn rate so I will use the same size (length and width) wick in my experiment. Through out research i found out that oxygen also affects the burn rate of candles. Too much oxygen can lead to more combustion. I have decided to keep both of the candles in a room with no open windows so both the candles get the same amount of oxygen. Testing Procedure Experimental Research: Do white Candles burn faster than coloured? Aim: To find out if dye can affect the burning speed of paraffin candles? Testing Procedures: Place two 5 cm candles ,one white and one blue, onto two foam blocks at the same height and in the same room. Mark 1 inch down each candle Burn both of the candles…

    Conclusion: After observing the evidence that we received from this experiment it is clear that the results thoroughly support my hypothesis. Within my hypothesis I had stated that the melting order from first to last was, as follows, paraffin, glucose, sucrose, and finally, salt. The results that we gathered supported this exact hypothesis. The first substance to melt was indeed paraffin and the second was glucose, and then sucrose and finally salt. The results are supported by the basic…
