Why is the craft candle easily blown out?

Please light a candle and look at it from the side. You can see that the wick and the flame are not close together. There is a small distance between them. This means that the candle core does not burn when the craft candle burns. It is an explosive gas combustion.

Where did the flammable gas come from? The wax is decomposed by heat, and there is combustible gas.

Let’s take a look at the burning process of the candle. The wax melts first when waxing, forming a small wax pool at the candle core. By capillary action, the wax liquid is continuously sucked up and is decomposed into a combustible gas in the upper part of the process candle core and then burned.


The process of candle wax vapor is continuously decomposed to make the candle burn. The mouth is blown, the flame and the flammable gas are separated by the airflow, the back road is cut off, and the candle is naturally extinguished. Did you find this principle?
