Experimenting With Nitrous Oxide (NOS)
Nitrous oxide (NOS) is also used as a component in rocket fuels – it acts as the oxidising agent. To understand what this you need to know a bit of simple chemistry, when a fuel burns it is oxidising or reacting with oxygen. The more oxygen you can get to the fuel the quicker it will release its energy.
This is why when you blow on a fire the flames get higher and also why smoking inside an oxygen tent is a big no-no. When nitrous oxide (NOS) is heated it releases its oxygen and allows it to react with the fuel.
The nitrous oxide (NOS) sold in cream chargers is 100% pure for human consumption. It is sold as a whipped cream propellant for use with whipped cream dispensers.
