Different materials burn at different temperatures, so a log fire burning in a fireplace may only average about 600 degrees C, but a well-stoked wood fire can exceed 1,100 degrees C. The flame from an acetylene torch bur... More »

Dry wood catches fire between about 300 degrees Fahrenheit and 580 degrees Fahrenheit, depending upon the species of wood and the extent of decay present, with more decayed wood being quicker to ignite. The amount of moi... More »

Depending on the type of wood and the conditions involved, a wood fire can begin to burn at approximately 300 degrees Fahrenheit, but full flames typically require a heat of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Some wood fires reach ... 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 »

A clinical thermometer is a thermometer that has been designed to measure the human body's temperature; they are designed to detect temperatures a few degrees above and below the average human temperature (97.7 to 99.5 d... 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 temperature of a flame from a known material can be estimated based on the flame's color. However, flame color is also affected by the material being burnt and differs based on its chemical properties in addition to ... More »
