what is dynamite and how does it work? - absorbent material
Explosives are an example of chemical explosives.
An explosion is something that, in the course of an explosion, burns quickly and produces a large amount of hot gas once ignited.
The heat expands rapidly and puts pressure on it.
The other explosives that you often hear are nitrate and TNT, but everything from gasoline to ammonium nitrate fertilizer to special plastic explosives is in the same category.
Most real explosives contain the oxygen they need to burn in chemicals.
This makes burning happen faster.
For example, there is a chemical formula C3H5 (ONO2)3.
Carbon and hydrogen combine with oxygen and nitrogen is released.
Explosives are just some kind of absorbing material (like sawdust)
Soak with nitric acid
This absorption material makes the nitric acid glycerin more stable.
You usually detonate explosives with a blasting cap. -
A blasting cap produces a small explosion that causes a larger explosion of the explosives themselves.
