SO I WAS HAVING A LOT OF FEELS FROM THE NEWEST EPISODE AND I DECIDED TO DRAW TAMIKA TO HELP
I’m not sure if it helped, that episode has hurt my soul
but on the upside, tamika is a goddess and I love her, precious 13 year old rebellion leader

consulting-cannibal:

We reached out for comment to the President of Night Vale Community College, Sarah Sultan (who is a smooth, fist-sized river rock,) about the extreme beliefs expressed by a staff member. Sarah had no comment, as she is a smooth, fist-sized river rock, and unable to speak. She can write, however, and wrote “no comment,” before drawing an insulting caricature of your humble reporter. Which was hurtful, and unnecessary.

Could you describe what it is about the molecular composition of gunpowder that reacts when exposed to a flame? :)

compoundchem:

Gunpowder, also called black powder, is a mixture of carbon (in the form of charcoal), potassium nitrate (also called saltpeter), and sulfur. These three ingredients are mixed in a 75:15:10 ratio, and all three are important for gunpowder to burn.

  • Charcoal: acts as fuel for the reaction.
  • Potassium nitrate: the combustion of this chemical provides oxygen for the reaction.
  • Sulfur: like charcoal, acts as a fuel, but also lowers the temperature required for the ignition of the reaction, and so increases the rate at which it occurs.

It’s the potassium nitrate, then, that is key for the reaction to take place - it supplies the oxygen that allows the reaction to occur so rapidly.

The burning of gunpowder doesn’t actually take place as a single reaction - a wide range of hard to predict compounds are produced. A simplified equation for the ‘ideal’ reaction is given below:

10 KNO3 + 3 S + 8 C → 2 K2CO3 + 3 K2SO4 + 6 CO2 + 5 N2

Hope that answers your question! I might even develop the quick graphic I threw together here for a future post :)

Archer is convinced he’s caught himself a mouse. I don’t know how to tell him it’s just a cat toy. 😂 I’ve been out of town for a little while, and it’s nice to be back with the birds again! 🐤💕 #bird #hawk #redshoulder #wildlife
