Non- Luminous can burn efficiently because luminous flames don't burn as efficiently as non-luminous ones, they don't produce as much energy. This means that the non-luminous flames have a lot more energy than luminous ones, and their flames are actually hotter. This is why the luminous ones look yellow and the non-luminous ones look blue. Hotter flames burn blue and (relatively) cooler ones burn yellow.

The temperature of a luminous flame is less than that of a nonluminous flame.

If you refer to organic gas flame, then the nonluminous part refers to complete burning, while the luminous part is tiny carbon particles which did not burn

The temperature of a luminous flame's less than a non-luminous flame

The flame test is made in nonluminous flames which are not high flames.

the nonluminous (blue) flame is preffered because it is much hotter and more controllable/steady

You reduce the supply of fuel. A "yellow" flame is a lot cooler than a "blue" flame. As it pertains to Chemistry, the dominant color for a nonluminous flame (yellow) is blue.

the nonluminous (blue) flame is preffered because it is much hotter and more controllable/steady

The dominant color of a nonluminous flame on a Bunsen burner is blue. Whereas, the dominant color of a luminous flame on a Bunsen burner is orange.

A non-luminous flame is normally used in laboratories, and is blue in color. That is because the flame is cooler, and does not produce soot. The luminous flame is way hotter, and is yellow in color. The luminous flame contains carbon dioxide, while the non-luminous flame contains oxygen.

yellow color in a luminous flame produces soot or carbon. carbon dioxide is present in the luminous flame but when its combined with oxygen the flame is nonluminous which is in a blue color. it takes a longer time because luminous flame is cooler than the nonluminous. I only know what luminous flame is. The inner part of luminous flame is blue while the outer part of the luminous flame is yellow. It is unsteady. Yeah. Carbon Dioxide is only present in the luminous flame. When oxygen is combined with the flame, the flame will become non- luminous which is inner and outer part are blue. Hmm. Actually luminous flame's hottest part is at the bottom while non- luminous flame hottest part is at the middle and the top. That's all i know. If i know more, i will update for you. Thank you!

A non luminous flame should be used because the flame can reach a higher temperature than a luminous flame. This means that substances will be heated faster. It also doesn't produce soot unlike a luminous flame. A nonluminous flame is also steady but a luminous flame is not.

the advantage of a blue flame is that it is more effecient(hotter flame less flue). the flame is hotter than a yellow one and no soot is produced which blackens test tubes

The advantages to a flame test are they are fast, easy and inexpensive. The disadvantages are that the results are observance based and can vary depending on the scientist.

The advantage of using non-luminous flame is the production of a higher amount of energy. Non-luminous flame burns more efficiently compared to luminous flame.
