There is a lack of oxygen in the flame itself (most probably because of the air holes in the Bunsen burner or of your burning device) this effect would create a luminous flame (better known as a yellow flame). A kind of flame that does not burn as hot as a non-luminous flame (better known as a blue flame)

How do we determine Cepheid variables distance from us?

Cepheids have a certain relationship between their period, and their absolute luminosity. Thus, their absolute luminosity can be determined. Comparing this with their apparent luminosity allows us to calculate their distance.Cepheids have a certain relationship between their period, and their absolute luminosity.

What are the products of complete combustion of alkenes?

Alkenes, like alkanes, are highly combustible. Alkenes burn with a luminous flame to give carbon dioxide and water. The flame becomes luminous because of the higher carbon content of alkenes than alkanes. Their combustion reactions are exothermic. Due to the luminosity of the flame, the lower alkenes may be used as illuminants.
