Atmospheric air provides oxygen that induces flame while we blow out carbon dioxide which doesn't

Hi anonymous!
Oxygen is necessary for combustion.
Blowing out a candle makes the candle goes out. Because in candle the flame is due to burning of vapoutized wax. When we blow the candle the vapourized wax is removed from the heat source and the candle flame goes out.
Where as in the case of wood blowing on glowing wood or charcoal will make it burn faster. When you blow the fuel cannot move away. Here while blowing your adding air to the fuel so it catches fire easily.

Hope this is useful for you...

When we take a blanket at room temperature and wrap it around ourselves, we become warmer than if we were uncovered by the blanket.

When we take a blanket at room temperature and wrap it around an ice cube, would it melt faster or slower than if the ice cube was uncovered by the blanket?
