INVESTIGATORY PROJECT

ABSTRACT:
Adding oil to candle wax would soften it. The wax would melt at a lower temperature and the candle would drip more and burn down faster. The flame would also be larger than a flame on a candle with hard wax. Also, the flame would produce more soot and there would probably be an odor from whatever was cooked in the oil before it was used in the candle. Results of the tests showed that the candle made from 100 percent paraffin wax had the lowest melting rate, lowest amount of melted candle. The 90:10 preparation had the next lowest melting rate and amount of melted candle. The other preparations ranked according to the proportion of used cooking oil in the candle, with the 50:50 preparation performing least comparably with the 100 percent paraffin wax candle.

I. Introduction
A. Background of the Study
A candle is a solid block of wax with an embedded wick, which is lit to provide light, and sometimes heat, and historically as a method of keeping time. Today, most candles are made from paraffin. Candles can also be...
