    Bob, this is a thought question. You may have thought about this and perhaps you have worked through it but you haven't posted any of your thoughts. I can get you started. Paraffin is a hydrocarbon that is an oil based product. The products of a hydrocarbon, when burned, are CO2 and H2O (carbon dioxide and water). Please post your thoughts and someone here will be happy to help you through if you have trouble.

    paraffin is a petroleum by-product.
    When burned- would you call the black stuff soot or carbon?

  • Science - ,

    The trivial name for it is soot; however, it is carbon.
