Division 1.1: Explosives with a mass explosion hazard Division 1.2: Explosives with a projection hazard Division 1.3: Explosives with predominately a fire hazard Division 1.4: Explosives with no significant blast hazard Division 1.5: Very insensitive explosives; blasting agents Division 1.6: Extremely insensitive detonating substances
That depends on where you are and what kind of explosives you make. The ATF redefined the word 'explosives" last year to include several products that were not previously considered explosives. In many places you can make your own black powder, rocket propellants and fuse. Some more powerful "explosives" can be made in very small quantities for use in fireworks, but there are restrictions on the storage of explosives. For more detailed and up to…
Known as the Miznay-Schardin effect, a section of metal is shaped into a projectile by the force of an explosion. Also known as a platter charge, a metal disk with explosives on one side is turned from a disk into a bullet when the explosives are detonated, and driven forward at high speed at the same time.
Explosives are chemicals or compositions that rapidly decompose to form large volumes of gases, usually releasing lots of heat in the process. There are two main types of explosives, high and low. Low explosives deflagrate, or burn. Examples are gunpowder and flash powder. They burn at subsonic rates. They are heaving explosives, they push their surroundings. High explosives detonate. Detonation is supersonic combustion powered by a self sustaining shockwave. Velocities of the shockwaves are very…
In most cases, yes, they will work in a vacuum. It will depend on how the grenade was designed. If the firing mechanism is designed to work without the need for air, it should work just fine. Many explosives are made with the oxidizing materials as part of the explosive so they don't require oxygen.
