I understand the basis of the redox reaction occuring, but I am not certain
why there are regions in a flame. A picture I am looking at shows the lower
pale blue portion to be the reducing region and the the upper to be the
oxidizing. What is oxidized/reduced in these regions? As an extension, would
it matter what part of the flame you put a sample in for a simple flame
test? Thank you for your service.
