The Physics, Chemistry and Perception of Colored Flames, Part 2

4.0 The Chemistry of Colored Flames

4.1 A Summary of General Chemistry for Colored Flame Production

This paper is intended to benefit readers who do not enjoy a thorough understanding of chemistry. Thus, before dealing with more advanced topics, a discussion of some aspects of general chemistry may be of benefit. Any reader with an understanding of chemical symbols and the Periodic Table, chemical formulas and IUPAC nomenclature, chemical equations, the idea of reversibility and Le Châtelier’s Principle, stoichiometry and mole weights should skip ahead to section 4.2.
