Danielle Tamayo What is a Firework? What Type Of Reaction Occurs? Sparklers Careers Luminescence/incandescence Anatomy of a Firework Safety/Effects Originally a shoot of bamboo- popping sound resulted from heat and air/sap condensed inside Used for religious and recreational purposed world-wide Exothermic Oxidation/Reduction Combustion Luminescence: Electrons absorb energy (unstable state) Incandescence: Light
from heat Luminescence: Red : Li2CO3, SrCO3 Blue: C2H3O2 Green: BaCl Incandescence: Orange: CaCl2, SrOH Yellow: NaNO3, Na3AlF6 White: BaO Purple: Mix of Strontium&
Copper cpds Black Powder: 75% KNO3, 15% charcoal, 10% S Stars: Small, compact balls. Creates sparks and colors. Burns as flies. V.
