1. A flame heats the sample and may produce a flame color that helps us detect the presence of a certain element. Some elements cause the flame to glow a certain color which tells us that element is present in the sample. For example, a very bright yellow-orange flame color ...

If a flame on the candle burns red , how does energy of that flame compare to that of the Bunsen burner flame ? and why ? ans:The Bunsen burner flame has higher temperature than candle’s flame . Because flame of candle emit red ,and red has the least energy in visible light.

Frankly, I think the nitrate ion has little to do with it other than helping the salt volatilize in the flame. Generally, chlorides or nitrates are used for the flame tests of these cations and its done because those salts volatilize a little easier than some of th others.

It depends upon what atomic or ionic lines the photometer is looking at, and what is added to the flame. Generally speaking, a hotter flame will be brighter, but not at all wavelengths. Ion lines will tend to be favored over neutral atomic lines at higher temperature.
