Chemistry / Ballistics spags!
« on: February 24, 2011, 08:40:37 pm »
I have acquired some Cobalt(II) Carbonate for the purpose of manufacturing a blue flame.  I have played with it, and I have done an amount of web searching in vain hope of finding information on what, when it comes down to it, the best method is. 

Currently my plan has been to stuff some of it into a blank 12ga. shell and fire it from a shotgun, but I have hitherto been unable to determine, well, anything.   :oops: 

I could use a clue.

Specifically, the temperature at which the reagent is said to give a blue flame, or some kind of hint as to how I'd work it out myself.

Soap and gasoline.

Really!  Bar soap.

Hmm.  I will try it!

Hang on, hang on.  That's... ah. 

Will it work, though?

Polystyrene works better than soap.  Most packing peanuts are made of the stuff.

Most disposable cutlery as well.  You have to look, you don't want polypropylene.  The flimsy bendable cutlery is polypro, the rigid is polysty...

Hmm.  I'm wondering how I can work this into shotshell form, since that was the boast I originally made that started this project.

Use some primer and/or powder in the shell to ignite it?

I'm pretty sure viscous flaming liquid is *not* something you want to put in a shotgun shell.

Yeah, I think flash powder ought to work.

I'm pretty sure viscous flaming liquid is *not* something you want to put in a shotgun shell.

My shotgun cost a hundred bucks, and is a glorified tube.

I mean, sure, it might cause absurd amounts of havoc to discharge such a shell, but would it be a danger to the gun?

Wrap the mass in paper before loading it into the shell? Unless you want the ZOMFGDIDYOUJUSTSHOOTFIREFROMYOURGUNNZOORZZZ effect.

That was kind of the point, yeah.  I want to make, in effect, a blue dragons breath round, with the exception that I don't want to start huge fires.

Smooth barreled shotguns that are rated to fire slugs arenít damaged by WP rounds, so the gun should probably be ok.  I was thinking more dangerous to you personally.

Well, I've done stupider things with fireworks and lived to laugh about it.
