In this episode, we will explore the science and math around a candle. Nowadays, we don’t give much importance to the candle as we all have electricity in our homes. But so many concepts, starting from gravitational force to the chemical reactions between atom-molecule, can be discussed with candles. The session is motivated by the Christmas Lecture of Michael Faraday given in 1848 and known as "The Chemical History of a Candle”.
The session discusses what really burns in the candle, how does the fuel reaches the top of the wick, shape, color, and the shadow of the flame, products of the chemical reaction, and 6 trillion candles are burning inside us!!
