Burning Candle experiment

posted by .

what is the shape of the candle flame?

To me it looks kind of like a leaf--more like a teardrop. Am I correct?

where does the wax from the candle go?
Does it just burn in the flame?

    It looks somewhat a flame to me, too.
    The wax either burns in the flame, producing CO2 and H2O or it drips down the side of the candle instead of burning.
