The Chemistry and Technology of Solid Rocket Propellants A
A solid-propellant rocket or solid rocket is a rocket with a rocket engine that uses solid propellants (fuel/oxidizer).The earliest rockets were solid-fuel rockets powered by gunpowder; they were used in warfare by the Chinese, Indians, Mongols and Persians, as early as the 13th century.. All rockets used some form of solid or powdered propellant up until the 20th century, when liquid
Rocket propellant is a material used either directly by a rocket as the reaction mass (propulsive mass), or indirectly to produce the reaction mass in a chemical reaction.The reaction mass is that which is ejected, typically with very high speed, from a rocket engine to produce thrust.. There are a number of different kinds of propellant: chemical rockets use propellants capable of undergoing

NASA - The Tyranny of the Rocket Equation
Hydrogen-oxygen is the most energetic chemical reaction known for use in a human rated rocket. Chemistry is unable to give us any more. In the 1970’s, an experimental nuclear thermal rocket engine gave an energy equivalent of 8.3 km/s.
The Space Review: Pencils down: OmegA awaits final grade
Submitting a rocket design to the United States Air Force has a lot in common with writing a school report. You don’t get to choose the topic, the teacher imposes requirements for page count, and the closer you get to the due date, the faster and more frantic the changes become as you try to turn in the perfect paper.
ROCKET ENGINE THEORY - The Weird World of Winchell Chung
ROCKET ENGINES 101. If you already know about Newton's three laws of motion and how rockets work, you can skip ahead to the next section.. Spaceships have it hard because space does not have all the advantages we take for granted on Terra.
Nitrocellulose | chemical compound | Britannica
Nitrocellulose: Nitrocellulose, a mixture of nitric esters of cellulose, and a highly flammable compound that is the main ingredient of modern gunpowder and is also employed in certain lacquers and paints. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries it was the basis of the earliest man-made fibres and plastic

Real-life applications - Gases - Introduction to the Gas Laws
The Ideal Gas Law Once again, it is easy to see how Avogadro's law can be related to the laws discussed earlier. Like the other three, this one involves the parameters of temperature, pressure, and volume, but it also introduces a fourth—quantity of molecules (that is, number of moles).
