Deep red fire is about 600-800° Celsius (1112-1800° Fahrenheit), orange-yellow is around 1100° Celsius (2012° Fahrenheit), and a white flame is hotter still, ranging from 1300-1500 Celsius (2400-2700° Fahrenheit). A blue flame is the hottest one of all, ranging from 1400-1650° Celsius (2600-3000° Fahrenheit).
The hottest flame we've discussed so far is produced by burning propane and can reach temperatures as high as 5,100°F when burned in pure oxygen. However, there are other source materials and conditions that can produce an even hotter flame.
In general terms, wood will burn up to about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the type of wood and the way that a fire has been structured. It is possible to get it to burn at even greater temperatures, but it requires a very specific setup.
This is black fire. When you mix a sodium street light or low-pressure sodium lamp with a flame, you'll see a dark flame thanks to the sodium and some excited electrons. “It's strange to think of a flame as dark because as we know flames give out light, but the sodium is absorbing the light from the lamp.
The color of the flames is apart of temperature affected also by the type of fuel used (i.e. the material being burned) as some chemicals present in the material can taint flames by various colors. Blue-violet (purple) flames are one of the hottest visible parts of fire at more than 1400°C (2552°F).
While lava can be as hot as 2200 F, some flames can be much hotter, such as 3600 F or more, while a candle flame can be as low as 1800 F. Lava is hotter than a typical wood or coal-buring fire, but some flames, such as that of an acetylene torch, is hotter than lava.
The more faint the colour, the lower the temperature. A more vibrant red, something closer to orange, will hit the higher end of the scale measuring nearer the 1,000°C mark. Orange flames range from around 1100°C to 1200°C. White flames are hotter, measuring 1300°C to about 1500°C.
When temperatures approach 2,400º F to 2,700º F, flames appear white. You can see these differences for yourself by observing a candle flame or a piece of burning wood. The part of the flame closest to the candle or the wood will usually be white, since the temperature is usually greatest near the fuel source.
Internal Temperature: A campfire can reach internal temperatures of 1650°F (900°C) in the flames, known as the continuous flame region. Cooking Temperature: Above the flames (called the thermal plume region) where no flames are visible, you can expect temperatures of about 600°F (320°C).
This energy is then felt in the form of temperature, or heat. Thus the colors of light with the highest frequency will have the hottest temperature. From the visible spectrum, we know violet would glow the hottest, and blue glows less hot.
As copper heats up, it absorbs energy that's manifested in the form of a green flame. A pink flame, on the other hand, indicates the presence of lithium chloride. And burning strontium chloride will create a red flame. Of course, you should avoid burning chemicals due to the potential health hazards it poses.
Using liquid helium, the researchers were able to cool a lipidic mesophase consisting of a chemically modified monoacylglycerol to a temperature as low as minus 263 degrees Celsius, which is a mere 10 degrees above the absolute zero temperature, and still no ice crystals formed.
Magma and lava solidify in much the same way that water freezes. When magma or lava cools down enough, it solidi- fies, or "freezes," to form igneous rock. One difference between water freezing and magma freezing is that water freezes at 0°C and magma and lava freeze at between 700°C and 1,250°C.
