# Candle water problem

A bottle is placed over a lit candle sitting in a bowl of water.

The amount of oxygen the candle can use is more than the $$\ce{CO_2}$$ it produces, so water is sucked up into the bottle from the bowl, making the water level inside the bottle slowly rise.

What will happen to this water level when there is no more oxygen left in the bottle and the candle is extinguished?
