There are different reasons for flames being yellow and the properties depend on the reason.

because yellow flames dont burn effectively and leave carbon so burning with yellow flames leaves soot on the glassware

luminous flames have a bluish to violet color and it means that the system is given enough oxygen for the reaction. Luminous flames will not produce soot. non luminous flames are orange, red, and yellow much like your everyday campfire but this system is not given enough oxygen therefore produce soot.

Blue flames are considerably hotter than yellow flames.

Flames change colour according to what is being burnt and whether it is complete or incomplete combustion. Blue flames usually come about due to gas being burnt as that is complete combustion so all of the gas is burnt with no bi-products. Yellow flames however, the ones that usually come about due to wood being burnt come about because of the soot (carbon) produced when it is burnt. The soot burning is what produces the yellow flames. Flames can be all sorts of colours though, for instance, if you burn copper oxide then the flame will be green.

yes, they are. here are the flame colors in order from hottest to coolest. white - hottest blue - hotter yellow - hot orange - cooler than yellow red - cooler than all of above

The two types of flames a Bunsen burner can produce are a luminous, yellow flame and a "roaring" blue flame. The blue flame is much hotter than the yellow flame.

its highly visible and cooler than other coloured flames

A bunsen burner with any flame is dangerous, because fire is hot! But, blue flames are hotter than yellow flames.

The properties for sulphur is that: its bright yellow Looks like powder! Its a solid

Blue flames can be an indicator of temperature, because blue flames burn hotter than yellow flames, or it could be a chemical that burns blue. Something else that could create blue flames in a gas fireplace is if the air-to-gas mixture ratio is off, more air means bluer flames.

its really hot over 3000 degrees Celsius. there are flames. its yellow.

The yellow flame, containing unburned carbon, is considered as bad.

The yellow flame gets to be 1800* F. Flames stay yellow because of bits of soot that do not burn hot enough to make it hotter or turn blue.

The hotter the flame, the less color (and light) given off. Bright, yellow flames are the result of carbon that has not been burned, where blue flames indicate a near total burning of the fuel. Other chemicals present in the wood can color flames- sometimes added for the appearance- red, yellow, blue, green.

yellow flames are created when the fuel turns into vapour and burns . if the fuel is a clean fuel then if we heat it it produces only heat not a light producing flame(blue flame).If the fuel burns with a yellow flame it means it is not burnt completely and releases unburnt carbon (clean fuel produce CO2.

Hydrogen burns with flames when ignited in contact with oxygen, fluorine and chlorine.

All the unknowns have different chemical properties. So when they are burned to perform the flame test, they emit different colored flames. Based on the color of the flames, the unknown can be identified.

The Blue Flame Will Be Noisier. The Yellow Flame Is Called A Safety Flame Because Everyone can See it. There Are Two Blue Flames: Medium Roaring The Roaring Flame Has A Blue Cone In The Middle Of The Flame And It Is The Hottest. It Also Has More Oxygen. But Overall, The Blue Flames Will Be Noisier Than The Yellow Flame.

the properties of lava rocks are: rough/bumpy, smell like dirt, can be yellow, red, gold and black.the properties of lava rocks are: rough/bumpy, smell like dirt, can be yellow, red, gold and black.

Salt has several chemical properties. The chemical properties that it is most known for are that it will create orange colored flames when heated in a bunsen flame. Being ionic, it is water soluble and it can conduct electricity in solution or when molten.

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 physical properties of chlorine: greenish, yellow color; it's a respiratory irritant, its odor.
