If you fix a candle firmly at the bottom of a bottle and Light the candle and cork the bottle,Then measure the time taken for the flame to extinguish with the help of a stopwatch the fire roughly takes 3 sec to extinguish but when the bottle is in the state of free fall the fire extinguised in 1 sec or less WHY?



Wen u Cork the bottle some amount of air is left inside the bottle which is used by candle to light for some amount of time..BT when u make a free fall air applies a pressure towards the flame which makes it to extinguish
