Hey, A friend of mine and I are doing a project for our 11th grade Chemistry class. Everyone in the class has to take a chemical reaction in everyday life and do a project on it. My friend and I chose to do smokeless powder. I need some assistance though. To do this project we need the chemical equation of what happens when the firearm goes off. The equation must go something like this spark from primer + gunpowder = the gas it gives off. Now I need to take that and put in chemical equation form with all the elements, coefficients, and subscripts. PLEASE, any help would be grateful, even just a general equation it doesnt have to be for a particular powder. Or, if anyone knows a place i could call up to get some answers and information please do not hesitate who i should contact. Thank you.
