Candle
A CANDLE is an ignitable wick embedded in wax or another flammable solid substance such as tallow that provides light , and in some cases, a fragrance . It can also be used to provide heat , or used as a method of keeping time . A candle manufacturer is traditionally known as a chandler . Various devices have been invented to hold candles, from simple tabletop candle holders to elaborate chandeliers . For a candle to burn, a heat source (commonly a naked flame) is used to light the candle's wick, which melts and vaporizes a small amount of fuel (the wax). Once vaporized, the fuel combines with oxygen in the atmosphere to ignite and form a constant flame . This flame provides sufficient heat to keep the candle burning via a self-sustaining chain of events: the heat of the flame melts the top of the mass of solid fuel; the liquefied fuel then moves upward through the wick via capillary action ; the liquefied fuel finally vaporizes to burn within the candle's flame
