What is difference between melting and buring of wax
Asked by himanih100 | 13th Sep, 2021, 12:11: PM
Melting of wax is a physical change. By heating , solid phase of wax becomes liquid phase .
The process of melting of wax is reversible. If the wax in liquid state is cooled , then it becomes solid wax.
Burning of wax is chemical change . Wax material is made up of hydrocarbon .
While burning the wax, hydrocarbon molecules are undergoing chemical reaction that changes hydrocarbon molecules
to be converted into Carbon-di-oxide and water vapour. This is an oxidation reaction.
The process of burning wax, which is a chemical change is irreversible.

- explain geothermal energy?
- name the device to produce electricity from fossil fuels
- The total amount of heat produced by a fuel having a calorific value of 20 kJ kg 1 was found to be 50,000 joules. How much fuel was burnt? 2500 kg 250 kg 25 kg 2.5 kg
- Please answer this: Suppose that one is given a task to arrange the calorific value of some fuels in ascending order If natural gas ,cooking gas,and alcohol are said to be compared where should I place the natural gas as it has the range il of numbers instead of a single value
- why should a fuel have low rate of evaporation?
- why is non renewable resources of energy is called conventional sources of energy?
- Hii what is force
- Describe with reason if nuclear energy is renewable or non renewable
