Many years ago, plumbers used the plumbers candle to join pipes together. Wax from the burning candle would be dripped onto a "wiping cloth" to form a protective coating on the cloth. Molten lead would then be poured onto the cloth and wiped onto the joint of the pipes to seal the joint. The candle …wax prevented the lead from sticking to the cloth. This process of joining pipes together was called "lead wiping." It is likely that plumbers needed a candle that would give off a lot of light while they worked in dark confined spaces. They may have asked candlemakers to create a candle that provided more light than a normal taper candle. So, another theory for the origin of the plumbers candle is that the plumbers candle was made specifically to provide light for plumbers as they worked. In the days before paraffin wax, tallow (animal fat or oil) was used to make candles. Plumbers candles used to be made from spermaceti, the oil from the head of the sperm whale. Spermaceti candles were renowned as the brightest burning candles of their times. The plumbers candle was made a bit thicker with a larger wick, which made it burn even brighter. Due to overhunting, the sperm whale become an endangered species, and use of the spermaceti became illegal. Paraffin wax quickly became a replacement for spermaceti and burns almost as brightly. ALSO: Plumbers' candles contain more stearic acid, which means they burn longer than cheap ones which contain less. ( Full Answer )

The colour would not make any difference to the speed at which they burn.. It's at least theoretically possible that a candle company might choose to color-code candles for some specific purpose (for example: candles intended as chafing dish warmers, or something) based on burn time, but for regula…r decorative candles the color is irrelevant.

Generally more energy is in a solid versus a liquid, so a wax candle will have more energy than an oil based candle which means the solid wax candle will burn out last over the oil one. Actually, I can't think of a case where the reverse is true. And btw, wax candle has around 42 kJ/g with oil candl…e being around ~30 kJ/g (type of oil will make a difference here). tho' i agree with most of the above, the most important part of any candle is the oil/oil byproduct/animal fat or beeswax that it is made from! a wax candle will NOT burn until it heats up enough to dissolve into an oil - which occurs between 140-160 degrees! therefore, an oil candle and a wax candle burn out at the same time!

Candles are good for many uses. One person might want them because they smell good and they decorate a room nicely. Another person might want a candle just in case the electricity has gone out and you need lighting. Candles are also good for getting rid of the smell when you are cooking.

Candles can be lit with a tinderbox, and then used to light dark dungeons, such as the Lumbridge Cellar dungeon. Candle's won't stay lit forever while in your inventory, so you should bring a tinderbox along in case it goes out. If you need a lightsource to enter a dungeon, it is recommended you u…se either an oil lantern if you have 26 firemaking, or a bullseye lantern if you have 49 firemaking, as these stay lit far longer than a candle. (Or, completing the easy tasks for the Seer's Diary (members only) and receiving a Seers Headband 1 is an alternate idea. It is preferable because it is permanently lit and thus does not require a tinderbox. It works either worn or left in your inventory.) Candles are also used in some quests such as Enlightened Journey and Merlin's Crystal. ( Full Answer )

The Paschal Candle which is the candle prepared and lit at the Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday. It is also the candle that burns at the head of a casket during a Catholic funeral.
Impossible to be specific. The candle was a slow and painful evolution from an observation by primitive man that the fat of animals would burn if a flame were touched to it. Originally, this was a vessel with a rough fiber wick in it. It would have smoked like crazy and smelled awful, but it was pro…bably still a miracle to our ancestors: A light after dark! And you can control it! Over many centuries, candle making developed from that. Candles were common in Europe by AD 500. ( Full Answer )
Yes, part of physics is studying the transfer of energy from one form to another. Within the candle is chemical potential energy (think about how the candle has to burn in scented candles), when a fire source comes near enough to the candle the chemical potential energy is transferred into thermal e…nergy (heat energy) and radiant energy (visible light energy) ( Full Answer )

Yes. You can melt the leftover wax and mold it into new candles. Of course you still need a wick for the new candle.
No, a candle is not a metal in the traditional sense of the word! however, candles that are colored often have some form of metal that makes up the color - cobalt creates a blue, copper creates an array from orange to green, and so on! you can always use natural elements/plants to produce colors as …well as create scents that can be added to the molten candle wax! the lavender flower not only creates a beautiful purple-blue, but has a fragrance that is both relaxing sweet smelling!

There are 9 candles that are lit on Hanukkah. One is the helpercandle ("shamash") used to light the other 8, which symbolize the 8days of Hanukkah. A story in the Talmud (500 years after the Maccabean War) tells ofa legendary miracle. After the war, When the Jews returned torededicate the Ancient T…emple, they found that there was onlyenough oil to keep the eternal lamp burning for 1 day. It wouldtake 8 days to make more of this special oil. So they lit the lamp,and it miraculously burned for 8 days, giving them plenty of timeto make more oil to keep the lamp burning. Although this is just a legend, in modern times, we light candlesto symbolize the miracle of the oil lasting 8 days. Answer: The above answer is non-traditional. Our tradition is that themiracle of the oil did indeed occur and isn't just a legend. If itwasn't for the clear tradition of our Sages, Hanukkah would havebeen forgotten long ago. The Seleucids (Syrian-Greeks) under Antiochus Epiphanes (2ndcentury BCE), at the instigation of the Hellenizers, had forbiddenvarious Torah-practices such as Sabbath-observance andcircumcision, rededicated the Temple to a Greek idol, and pressedthe Jews to offer up sacrifices to the idol. One of the leadingelder Jewish sages called upon the people to keep observing theTorah anyway; and if necessary, to use force in resisting thedecrees. When a Hellenized Jew offered a sacrifice to the Greekidols in a nearby village, the sage killed him as well as the Greekoverseer. This brought a violent reaction from the Greeks; and theloyal Jews, led by the Hasmonean family, were forced to retreatfrom their towns and strike out at the Greeks in an attempt to oustthem from the Holy Land and to enable the people to once againobserve the Torah. The Torah-Jews were heavily outnumbered by theattacking Greek armies, but God gave them miraculous victoriesagain and again. After three years of struggle, the Greek armiesretreated from Jerusalem, and the Hasmoneans (also calledMaccabees) entered the Holy Temple which the Greeks had defiled,reconsecrated it to God, and began the Temple service once more.Among other things, they wanted to relight the olive oilcandelabrum (Exodus ch. 25), but could only find one day's supplyof undefiled oil - and it would take eight days to make and bringsome more. Miraculously, the menorah stayed lit for eight days (Talmud,Shabbat 21b), allowing enough time for new oil to be prepared andbrought. The significance of the miracle is that it demonstratedthat God's presence was still there. The Torah-community wasoverjoyed, because God's presence meant everything to them. This is what Hanukkah represents: the closeness to God; and theavoidance of Hellenization (assimilation). The Torah Sages instituted the festival of Hanukkah at that time(Talmud, Shabbat 21b), to publicize the miracle (Rashi commentary,ibid). This is why we light our Hanukkah-menorahs. (The Hanukkah-menorah, or hanukkiyah, is a special form of theoriginal seven-branched menorah. Our Hanukkah-menorahs have eightspaces for oil, or candles, to mark each of the eight days forwhich the oil lasted and a ninth to hold the shamash, a candle usedto light the others.) The Al-Hanisim prayer which we recite during Hanukkah centersaround the Hasmoneans' victory and rededication of the Temple,while the candle-lighting commemorates the miracle of the oil. Though the military victory is prominently mentioned in theprayers, it wouldn't have been celebrated if not for the miracle ofthe oil. It should also be noted that the main goal for which theMaccabees fought was not political independence. They fought toenable the people to observe the Torah's commandments; as we say inthe Al Hanisim prayer: "The Greeks sought to cause us to forgetYour Torah and leave Your statutes." ( Full Answer )
A Yablochkov candle is an electric carbon candle consisting of twolong carbon blocks separated by a block of inert material.
No, it is a noun (wax incendiary light). It is also used a verbmeaning to examine, originally with a candle (chiefly poultryeggs).
It is usually a noun, but it can be a verb. It means to use acandle to examine an egg to see if it is fertile or fresh.
The only completely safe candle is one with a flame-shapedLED-light on top instead of a real flame. A fairly safe real candleis a tealight, since those lights usually come in an aluminum cupand will safely burn out.
