When a plastique explosive explodes what is the chemical reaction?
Any fire or explosive need oxygen to burn but with explosives the oxygen is in the molecule and it reacts with itself. Fuels need external oxygen to cause a explosion. The chemical reaction varies depending on what compound were used to prepare the explosive normally a nitrate (NO, providing the oxygen) and carbon (C, as the fuel).
Although the firecracker gets its energy from a chemical reaction, most of the damage it does is physical from the shockwave coming from it as it explodes. Very near the explosion there will also be some chemical damage as the burning explosive can burn some its surroundings - and burns are a type of chemical damage.
The chemical compound Water is made of two elements: Hydrogen and Oxygen. To get water you would need to perform a highly explosive chemical reaction. An example of this dangerous reaction occured with old style zeppelins that were filled with Hydrogen. So, the chemical formula of water is H2O and the reaction between Hydrogen and Oxygen is: Hydrogen + Oxygen --> Hydrogen Oxide Do not attempt this reaction.
The difference is the source of explosive energy, the temperature, and the reaction rate: atomic bomb, the explosive energy comes from the strong force nuclear binding energy, the temperature is millions of degrees, the reaction rate is on a scale of microseconds TNT, the explosive energy comes from the electrostatic force of chemical bonds between valence band electrons, the temperature is thousands of degrees, the reaction rate is on the scale of milliseconds
2 C7H5N3O6 → 3 N2 + 5 H2O + 7 CO + 7 C2 C7H5N3O6 → 3 N2 + 5 H2 + 12 CO + 2 C For dynamite the chemical reaction is exothermic. The compound is C3H5N3O9 (Nitroglycerin) which is mixed with saw dust and sodium bicarbonate. When it explodes the unstable bonds break and form more stable ones such as CO, N3, H2. This process is what creates the explosion. Now, if you…
In a chemical reaction how do the chemical properties of the products compare with the chemical properties of the reactants?
the difference between chemical reaction and chemical mequation is chemical reaction :- when to chemicals are ints compounds are combined there is a change in the property ofthe combined chemicals known as chemical reaction chemical equation:- representation of chemical reaction is known as chemical equation the difference between chemical reaction and chemical mequation is chemical reaction :- when to chemicals are ints compounds are combined there is a change in the property ofthe combined chemicals…
