With just one more day until July Fourth we hope you are ready for barbecue, spending time with family and friends...and of course fireworks! Join Chris Mocella during this free edited recording as he returns to share the science behind what will put the sparkle in the skies tomorrow night. In this explosive rebroadcast discover the pyrotechnic reactions that occur during testing techniques such as heat, spark, friction and impact. Please note that you are watching an edited recording and therefore there will be no possibility to ask live questions to the experts, but there will be trivia polls included to test your knowledge!

What You Will Learn

  • Principles of ignition and initiating pyrotechnic compositions
  • Principles of ignition sensitivity and sensitivity testing techniques, such as heat, spark, friction, and impact.
  • Common analytical techniques for pyrotechnic compositions, such as spectroscopy, luminosity, microscopy, and thermoanalysis
