Temperature versus radius for the test flame as determined from both filament and thermocouple methods. The x-axis (radius) varies from -13 to 13 millimeters. The y-axis (temperature) varies from 500 to 2100 K. The filament data are closely spaced, cover the region between -10 and 10 millimeters, and have peaks of about 1950 K at -6 and 6 millimeters. The thermocouple data are less closely spaced and cover the region from -12 to -6 millimeters. These data generally agree with the filament measurements, but they have a sharper peak and a peak temperature of about 2000 K.
