Modeling Fireworks with Visual Python Programming
The purpose of this project is to 3-D model different types of fireworks in order to examine the typical physical properties of fireworks. In completing this goal, visual python coding is used in addition to trigonometric functions in order to examine the way fireworks expand and progress through their explosions. While there are hundreds of types of fireworks, this project examines and models three types, specifically areal star shells, standard fountains, and spinning disk fountains. The project sheds light on the physical properties behind the celebratory phenomenon of fireworks so familiar to us.
