Today, our experiment was to test to see what happens when a piece of ice was 
held close to a small candle flame. The obvious results were: the ice melted, 
and the melting ice extinguished the flame. The surprise result was that a 
black spot appeared on the ice. We guessed it might be carbon. Are we right?
