At one time it was nitroglycerin- now it is probably ammonium nitrate, but RDX, HMX and TNT are also widely used.
Sea water is a free and rich source of sodium chloride. Electrolyzing a sodium chloride solution is a popular method of manufacturing sodium hydroxide. The same method is used in industrial method, and another advantage is that the manufacturing of two other important substances, namely hydrogen and chlorine gases.
mainly used in industrial chemicals
As the physics of nuclear explosives has not changed, pretty much the same elements as are used now. The main changes are not the elements, but the compounds that contain them (e.g. the chemical explosives have been replaced with safer ones, but both the old and new chemical explosives contain the same elements just in different arrangements. Polonium is an element used in the neutron sources of all 4 atomic bombs built during world war 2 (Gadget, Little Boy, Fat Man, and an unnamed bomb that was never used) that is no longer used in modern nuclear explosives. Polonium based neutron sources have a shelf life of roughly 180 days due to radioactive decay. These were replaced by electrically activated tritium fusion based neutron sources sometime in the middle 1950s which have a shelf life of roughly 12 years due to radioactive decay. Lithium is an element used in some modern nuclear explosives that was not used in world war 2, it is converted to tritium in those bombs for use as fusion fuel. The first use of lithium in a nuclear explosive was in 1953 by the USSR. It is important to realize that many many elements other than the nuclear fuels must be used in a nuclear explosive to make it work.
Dynamite is important because it was the first "safer" explosive. Dynamite is nitroglycerin that's been mixed with an absorbent like sawdust or cat litter then packed in tubes. Nitroglycerin is very shock sensitive--if you bump it hard enough, which isn't very hard, it will explode. A lot of people died transporting nitroglycerin. Dynamite, because it's relatively insensitive to shock, can be safely moved from the manufacturing plant to the jobsite.
It is the main ingredient of synthetic plant fertilisers and a main feedstock chemical to many industrial processes.
Dogs can be trained to scent a wide variety of evaporates from explosives and have a very important role in explosive detection.
It was an important stage in the development of textile manufacturing in the Industrial Revolution
Primary and secondary explosives. The definitions of these are rather loose, however typically primary explosives will detonate when ignited (example: mercury fulkminate), and secondary explosives require a shockewave to detonate (example: TNT). The most accurate definition is when used in the context of an "explosive train" whereby a fuse ignites the primary high explosive which undergoes deflagration to detonation transition, this detonation produces a shockwave which is used to initiate a secondary high explosive. So explosive compounds are classified into primary or secondary based there primary use.
nitrogen is useful in manufacturing many products like ammonia,explosives etc. it is used by plants from the soil for their varous processes
It was one of the earliest industries to find success industrializing and inspired others to follow its lead. This industry provided profits to England and expanded the markets for textile products world wide.
Without manufacturing, we would not have glass, rubber, etc.
3 phases in manufacturing process
socialist industrial society.
why were canals important in the first industrial revolution what problem did they solve and how was this accomplished
whats the answer
because it was
