Does candle wax evaporate?


1 Answer

Yes. When you light the candle, the solid wax melts and liquid wax is drawn up the wick. As the candle gets hotter, the liquid wax evaporates into a gas. This gaseous wax burns in the oxygen of the air. The gaseous wax remains in the air after you blow out the candle.
