Answer

The wick in a spirit lamp does not burn while the spirit in it burns because:

(i) The ignition temperature of wick is higher than that of spirit.

(ii) The heat produced by the burning of spirit is quickly transferred to the surroundings and, therefore, the temperature of wick remains below its ignition temperature.
