Is the velocity of a bunsen burner flame proportional to the cold flow velocity?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Is the velocity of a bunsen burner flame proportional to the cold flow velocity?


    2. Relevant equations

    S = Usin a

    Where S = flame velocity
    U = cold flow velocity
    a = half cone angle


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I took numerous photographs of flames of increasing flow rate and drew a triange over the flame front and then used the trig equation about to calculate S. ( I knew U from the flow metres)

    I have that S increases with U but I dont know if this is right! I'm on a meltdown at the moment and this thing is due in the morning and it's driving me mad!!!
