all the burners we have discussed so far, a Bunsen burner is the mostly
used. Therefore, we are going to discuss about the functioning of the
Bunsen burner in more detail. As the name suggests, this burner was
invented by a German scientist called Robert Bunsen, so it was named
after his name as a Bunsen burner. The burner uses coal gas, which burns
with a hot and non-luminous flame when the air holes are open. This is a
kind of flame we normally use in the laboratory.
