INTRODUCTION [METHOD]

Any fire needs fuel to keep on burning. As soon as the fuel is removed, the fire will be extinguished. Similarly, for a candle flame to stay lit, wax has to melt continuously and travel up the wick. When the flame's heat is removed and the wax is no longer melting, the flame will run out of fuel to burn, and be extinguished as you will see in the following science experiment:

STUFF YOU NEED [MATERIALS]

  • CANDLE
  • ALUMINIUM FOIL
  • SCISSORS
  • TONGS
  • MATCHES
  • ADULT HELPER
