In theory, a white candle and a colored candle created in exactly the same way should burn at the same rate, but the answer isn't as black and white as yes or no.
Firstly, the color of a candle will not affect the flame, burning pattern, or the burning rate of a candle as this is scientific. However, the rate a candle burns at can be down to a whole different range of factors, whether it be a colored or a white candle, and these must be taken into account when this question is asked.
The rate a candle burns can be down to the chemicals used to make the candle, especially if the candle is a colored one. To color a candle, a dye or a paint is usually used to color the wax itself, and if the dye or paint used is flammable, this could contribute to the candle burning quicker than say, a white candle treated with no dye or colorings, because the chemical may encourage a larger or more "aggressive flame" that burns the candle more quickly.
Another factor that should be taken into account when talking about the burn rate of a candle of any color, is the purity of the wax used to make the candle, as there are many different types of wax and the melting point and burning point can vary with each one. For example, a paraffin wax candle will burn significantly faster than one made from traditional beeswax.
The wick also must be taken to account when considering the burn rates of candles as wicks can be made from different materials, and different materials are more flammable than others.
Depending on the type of wick, the type of wax and any chemicals used to make the candle can contribute to the burn rate.
I recently did a science project with this same question and the concusion was that colored candles last about an hour longer then white candles
Yes it does.I did the research , by burning a red candle and a blue candle and a white candle all at the same time and which ever one finished first , it came out to be the white candle burns faster than the two colored candles.
White candles burn faster becasue they have less chemicals. I did this for my science project. I hope it helps out some one! (0_0)
The candle that are plain (white) burn faster because the don't hold as many chemical but if the candles were coloured then they hold more chemicals and are a lot heavier!!!
There is a good reason why one candle burns faster than another... Because it takes less time to vaporize the wax.
The color would only make a difference in that respect if a significant amount of the heat (imparted on the wax) came from the flame's infrared radiation. Because the wax is used up by it being heated from contact with the flame (and eventually being melted, vaporized, and then combusted), the composition of the wax and wick will have more consequence than how much light energy the wax absorbs or reflects.
White candles burn faster because colored candles have more chemicals which take a longer time to burn,although it also depends on the wick of the candle if it is cheap it wont burn if its a good quality wick it will burn.
Colored candles last atleast about an hour longer.
In my experience yes white candles do burn faster than colored candles.
Colored candles burn longer than the white ones.
Yes, they do burn differently than colored candles because colored candles have more chemicals than white candles.
White candles burn faster than colored candles because there are less chemicals
I did a science project on this
and the white candle burned faster than
the orange and the purple
I'm only in 4th grade and I wrote my hypothesis for a similar candle project and here it is: If a white candle has less chemicals than a colored candle I think the colored candle will burn faster because...it has lots of chemicals inside it and when you light a flame chemicals come out of it and it will take in the colored candles chemicals and let it out into the air. So yeah I think they burn at a different rate
I'm doing this experiment and yes they burn at different times
The reason white candles probably burns faster because it has less chemicals
White candles burn faster because they have less wick in them
White candles burn fester because it has less chemicals in it causing the candles the colored candles to burn slower than the white candles I'm a scientist I should kno
I just did a project on it, and when the white was done the colored still had about an inch left. I also used the same exact type, and brand.
It depends qat type of candle you have too. But personally I think that de white candle burns slower than de colored candles.
Hmmm? Well from my point of veiw colored candles burn more whats the word, slowly then white candles. I personally think colored candles or more thicker than white plan candles so then, The answer is yes. White candles burn at a diffrent rate then colored candles. Oh and colored candles smell way better than white plane stupid candles. I have 2,000 colored candles in my bathroom. Yes that might be weird, I know. Bye bye now.
That would depend on what was used to color the candles and what the candles are made out of and if the candles are all the same size and shape.
Yes they do if you test red,orange,yellow,purple,and blue they all burn faster than the white candle
Yes and no, they burn at a complete random length, so if it is cost and best color for your value it is your choice, most of the time they do, but wind and temperature also affect the outcome.
Yes a white candle burns faster than a color candle because lighter colors with wax burn faster than color candles
The white candle burns faster because it has less wick in it
Colored candles burn faster than white candles
Yes white ones do because if they have no scent they have much less chemicals =.>
White candles burn faster than colored. I just did a two week project on which burns faster and the white burns faster because it has less chemicals than colored candles do.
Yes they do but the wind can affect the outcome
Yes I think color candles burn faster than a white candle.
The colored candle burn out faster
Do white candles burn at a diffrent rate than colered candles
Recently I did a test, colored candles had more burned off within 6 hours of burning.
It is not the chemicals it is determined how thin the wick is thats whats burning
The colored one burns out faster
I don't know me and my friend our doing our project on it (:
Candles may burn different , it depends on the size of the wick
Yes white candles do burn faster than colored candles cause I have tryed it.
Well I think white ones do because there is less chemicals in the white kind and there is more in colored ones ^_^
I have no Idea I am so sorry but that is a gr8 science fair project! I just wanted 2 tell you that! I love that idea!
Well, no it doesnt. But the only way it burns at a different rate is by the length of the wick and by the thickness of the wax
I think white candle burns faster than colored candles, because it doesnt contain any chemicals
I don't know but I need to know for my science experiment. This was no help in finding research
No because they are made of the same material . But for the colored candles they just add color
White candles do, there are less chemicals
and I did my science project on it
and the white candles burned faster but not by much
Um I think that the white ones would burn faster since they actually have less chemicals... >_< I'm doing this for my science project...
It may depend on the wick but you will have to test different candles for that but it wouldnt be a fair test
I want to know why ,I'm doing a science fair project and I'm running out of time and I need to know what you think so please tell me why
I have done an experiment and I can say that WHITE candles burn faster. I also burnt some very light purple ones and a dark red, and the red one burnt out faster, so this means that it is not just the lighter colours.
Wow, mycasafck ? Your cool! No RED ones burn a hell of a lot faster, black ones the cheeta priont are the best !
I depend on how small the are and how much it height
No because they are all the same the only thing thats different from them is the color.
No they don't because colored has more
I don't kno who to believe because different people say white and different people say colored. They say that less chemicals will burn faster....but the other people say that less chemicals will burn quicker I am so confused. They say that they recently did the project, but they all got different results. This is quite difficult.
Yes it is true white candles do burn faster than colored and I just want to say yall people don't need to be given answers and you don't even know the answer,cause yall just saying what you think is write which is not,the white candle burns faster I have tryed it a whole bunch of times,ok.
No red burns faster and so does yellow,and orange
I think white burns faster because it has less heat in it then colored candles.
Hope it helps!
The lighter colored candles burn the fastest and not the dark color candles or the white candles.
White do because the colored have to much color for it to burn so it makes it hard for I to burn
Okay! I've always believed that darker/colored candles world burn faster, because of the transfered pigment. Oh, and I'm doing this for my science fair project. Too bad my hypothesis was wrong!
Yes because the white one has no color and the colored candles melt slower because the colored one, well it just melts faster!!!!
Red candles, not white because I actually experimented it!!!!!!
Having to do this for an assignment and just wondering if anyone has some more information for me ? Thanks .
Do white candles burn faster
No yellow burns the fastest
