White flames ordinarily have a temperature of 2,500 to 2,900 degrees Fahrenheit (1,400 to 1,600 degrees Centigrade). This can vary depending on the substance burned. More »

While a flame is the gaseous portion of a fire, a candle flame contains millions of diamond nanoparticles. Approximately 1.5 million diamond nanoparticles are created every second before converting into carbon dioxide. A... More »

The hottest flame is violet on the color spectrum and white in the visible spectrum. The type of fuel and impurities, in addition to the flame temperature, contribute to the color of the flame. More »

Joule’s constant expresses that 4,186 joules of work spent can consistently generate the same amount of heat that can increase the temperature of 1 kilogram of water by 33.8 degrees Fahrenheit. A relationship established... More »

An Acetylene torch flame reaches a temperature of 3,500 degree C, or 6,330 degrees F. This high temperature is reached when oxygen and acetylene are combined and burned together after being released from two separate tan... More »

The acronym "STP" stands for standard temperature and pressure, as defined by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. It is defined as a temperature of 273.15 degrees Kelvin and a pressure of 100 kilopasca... More »
