For my year 7 homework i have had to write a poster about pyhsical and chemical changes when a candle is alight. We have had to use certain vocabulary and one is evaporation. I know what this term means but don't know what evaporates when a candle is alight? Can someone please tell me what evaporates when a candle is alight and burning??????? Is it the gas made from the burning wick????

  • chemistry help please! - ,

    doesn't the wax melt, and then the heated liquid vaporizes, thence the gas burns in the atmosphere?

  • chemistry help please! - ,

    The candle burning breaks apart the hydrocarbons comprising the candle and forms water which it immediately evaporates.
