What is the hottest type of fire?
In respect to this, what is the color of the hottest fire?
The inner core of the candle flame is light blue, with a temperature of around 1800 K (1500 °C). That is the hottest part of the flame. The color inside the flame becomes yellow, orange, and finally red. The further you get from the center of the flame, the lower the temperature will be.
One may also ask, is green fire hotter than blue fire? Blue flames aren't always hotter than yellow flames, because the color of light emitted by the flame can depend on exactly which atoms and molecules are in the flame. This does not mean that the temperature of the whole fire went up, just that these chemicals made the color change.
Subsequently, question is, is white fire hotter than blue fire?
When temperatures approach 2,400º F to 2,700º F, flames appear white. The color blue indicates a temperature even hotter than white. Blue flames usually appear at a temperature between 2,600º F and 3,000º F. Blue flames have more oxygen and get hotter because gases burn hotter than organic materials, such as wood.
What is white fire?
White smoke can often mean material is off-gassing moisture and water vapor, meaning the fire is just starting to consume material. White smoke can also indicate light and flashy fuels such as grass or twigs.
