  • No the lowest point of the flame is the hottest.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] mark paul [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Primum Agmen Basically, spray your hand with deodorant (plenty of it, too little and it'll hurt), and then light it. If you do it right, it doesn't burn your hand.[/quote]I just tried that. Guess I didn't put enough on, although I sprayed for like 30 seconds. :([/quote]I never got the trick down, either. Perhaps you don't spray too much else you burn yourself. Who knows, the theory is sound, anyway.

The wick only gets covered in carbon, from the fire its producing. The fire is burning fuel not the material.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Super Ballz So... is a blue flame hotter than a red flame?[/quote] Yes, because it is closer to the heat source, however, it's better to roast things above the flame so that they absorb the heat and burn quicker. (obviously=Marshmallows and Silent Hill)

[/quote]You've got your facts mixed up I do believe sir.[/quote]Aye. Red/yellow flames are fairly inefficient as a result of wasted fuel. Blue/white flames are hotter and more efficient. Flames only have colour as a result of impurities and so on. So, hydrogen burns clear, copper oxide in a flame will burn green and so on. As to how to do that fireball in the hand, it has nothing to do with the fuel in the flame. If something is hot enough to have a flame, it's hot enough to kill a human. Basically, spray your hand with deodorant (plenty of it, too little and it'll hurt), and then light it. If you do it right, it doesn't burn your hand. Nothing to do with the heat of the flames, simply that it's burning what's on it as opposed to your hand. Same way that candle wicks work, actually. Or, as a better example, the wicks in oil lamps. It burns the fuel, not the wick (which is also flammable). Also, no, the top bit of the flame isn't the hottest part, anyone who has ever used a Bunsen burner knows that the cone you can see is the hottest part. :) The top just makes a test tube black very quickly due to waste hydrocarbons produced from a butane fire. Oh, that video is [i]neat[/i]. Because you're not holding it near where the heat is (flames rise, after all), and your hands aren't covered in any fuel, you just end up with a fireball that you can hold quite comfortably while there's fuel in it. Neat trick, but nothing extraordinary. [Edited on 05.02.2009 11:32 PM PDT]

[/quote] The fact that he's holding the ball is because of some fact of physics or chemistry or pain tolerance. Or it could be that by holding the ball, he's squelching out the oxygen where his hands/fingers make contact, and doesn't allow a flame, coupled with the fact that the flame is burning lighter fluid/fumes and not the cloth itself. Anyway, a blue flame is hotter than a red one. [Edited on 05.02.2009 11:18 PM PDT]
