CO2 from candle?
    #352886 - 07/02/01 10:19 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

First, I have to say that it is never recommended to leave a candle burning unattended. Do not make CO2 this way; just don't. This is a curiosity question designed to show my stupidity. ;)

If a burning candle produces carbon dioxide, why don't they smother themselves when burned in a cup-like candleholder?

My only guess is that the up-draft generated by the flame's heat must expel/exhaust the waste gas. Dunno..


What gets rewarded, gets done.
