CHEMISTRY FACT: Explosives
have characteristic "detonation
velocities" at which shockwaves
expand. Smartphone video records
at 30 FPS, so the adjacent frames
here suggest the front expands at
sec. Consistent with ammonium
nitrate, not black powder.

    • 30 is definitely too low now a days, this also a pretty inaccurate way to determine the source.

    • Chemistry fact. Flash powder (potassium perchlorate+aluminum powder) which is used in most fireworks nowadays has a detonation velocity higher than that of Ammonium nitrate
