Introduction to the Physics and Chemistry

K.L. and B.J. Kosanke

This article is a slight modification of an article originally prepared for the International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators. Because much of this same material is of interest to the fireworks community, this article was offered to the PGI Bulletin. However, in order to enhance its usefulness, some additional material was included and other sections were re-written. Because of the length of this paper, it will appear in three parts.

In part, this paper is intended to stand alone as an introduction to the basic physics and chemistry of low explosives (i.e., pyrotechnics). However, this paper is also intended to present information needed in preparation for other papers to follow.
