    The three regions:

    1. Outer non-luminous flame

    -outermost region of a flame

    -yellow to orange in color

    -there is incomplete combustion in this part so it produces soot(carbon)

    2. The tip(on top)of the inner blue flame

    -this is the hottest region

    3. Inner blue flame (non-luminous flame)

    -blue flame has sufficient O2 so that there's complete combustion

    it does not produce soot

    ******The tip of the inner blue flame is the hottest"

    Hottest Part Of A Flame

    In my experience, the very tip of the inside of the flame is always the hottest. That would be, generally speaking, the lower middle part of the flame.

    This is definitely true for regular Bunsen burners. And no, contrary to one of the other answers, the tip of the top of the flame isn't the hottest part (and far from it).

    If it is a pre-mixed flame (such as a Bunsen burner), the reaction occurs in a thin (1-millimeter) sheet, and this is where the temperature is the highest.

    In the center of the cone of flame, the reaction hasn't taken place yet, so the temperature is low. Outside the reaction zone, the gases are cooler as well.

    If the flame is a diffusion flame (such as a candle), the structure is different, but "middle" is probably still the best answer.

    The edges of a candle flame is where the temperature is as hotest, but allso where the plasma i quite thin, hence its weak glow. This is where the most effective combustion ocures.

    It is a common misconception that the colour of the flame and its heat are coerelated. For something to glow sucha faint blue light, only due to variating heat. It would probebly emit more ultraviolet radiation than vicible radiation. This would point to candles beeing much more hazardous, and perhaps even explosive. Its collor is more related to what you burn and the amount of oxygen.

    The blue bit of the flame is the hottest. Right in the centre.
