INTRODUCTION
It is almost summer, but due to our global climate change, hurricanes typhoons, and sudden rain showers, weren’t very surprising to come. In this investigatory project, we will prove that cooking oils can be made to become a source of light. It can be used as an alternative when we ran out of candles in times of emergency.

STATEMENTS OF THE PROBLEM
Cooking oil is a major kitchen item in Filipino households. It is also used substantially in fast-food outlets, where it is used in different stages of food preparations. Ordinarily, used cooking oil is discarded. This waste oil pollutes and clogs canals and sewerage systems.

This study aims to answer following questions:

*Will the oil produce smoke or bad smells as it burns?
*Would the same effect happen using a matchstick?
*Which one is brighter? The light from the oil or the light from a candle?

DEFINITION OF TERMS
