Homepage of "The" Rob Cerio, and his ramblings...
Of course... perfectly reasonable that a captain would know the chemical formula for gunpowder, and how to find the sulphur, saltpeter, and charcoal. The computer could easily find the letter of Pope Clement IV written in 1267 where the formula is first described. And any Starfleet Academy grad knows saltpeter is just Potassium Nitrate.
And... it is perfectly reasonable that Kirk would have a knowlege of 'salt peter' as I am more than sure that he was victemized by it during his academy days... you can't tell me that one of his academy mates didn't slip him some of this Erectile Disfunction causing agent just before a date when he planned on getting busy... so you would be sure that he would have saught out this chemical and educated himself on all of its uses...[ROFLMAO at the thought of Kirk suffering ED]
