[pct-l] Esbit verses Alcohol

UH, So then... That Esbit would burn faster if you turned it on its side???

For example, if you double the size of an esbit tablet, the volume
increasess by the cube of two 8 while the surface area only increases two
squared, 4, therefore if the burn rate is proportional to the surface area
(a reasonable assumption) then the this larger tablet will take twice as
long to deliver it's energy as its smaller cousin.
