Why do fireworks explode in a symmetrical way? The packing of the firework contains the explosive charge. When it is ignited the force radiates in all directions at the same time. Think of it as a lightbulb that is turned on. The light from the bulb goes in all directions at the same time. It is much too fast for you to see. A firework does the same thing only you see the burning pieces moving away from the explosion. They form a sphere.

The fireworks that explode in a symmetrically round shape are called "ball shells." The break charge is in the center of the shell and the stars (the colorful parts that shoot out) are packed around it, often in a single layer so that when the shell 'breaks' the stars are thrown out in a symmetrical pattern.
