Luminous flames are formed when the energy released is at a certain part of the electromagnetic spectrum. A red flame is given off when the energy is at the same energy and wavelength of red light. A yellow sooty flame is much lower energy and caused by a lack of oxygen. Burning fuels produce heat.…

The collar regulates the amount of air which mixes with the fuel gas before it is burned. If the hole in the collar is not lined up with the hole in the bunsen stem, the fuel does most of its mixing with air at the top of the burner. This makes burning inefficient and the flame is cool. When the two…
