Hi Everyone,

Ive been out of school for a long time, and Im trying to determine the amount of fuel (in this case is KNO3 and Sugar) required to raise the pressure inside a vessel to a given amount.

Basically what I am trying to do, is build a "jack" mechanism, that is actuated by a small electrical signal that fires an igniter, but Im getting stuck on determining the amount of fuel I will need.

Can anyone help?
