Because of its incendiary properties and the amount of heat and gas volume that it generates, gunpowder has been widely used as a propellant in firearms, artillery, rockets, and fireworks and as a blasting powder in quarrying, mining, and road building.
Gunpowder was invented in 9th-century China and spread throughout most parts of Eurasia by the end of the 13th century.
Ignition of gunpowder packed behind a projectile generates enough pressure to force the shot from the muzzle at high speed, but usually not enough force to rupture the gun barrel.
Gunpowder thus makes a good propellant, but is less suitable for shattering rock or fortifications with its low-yield explosive power.
From the violence of that salt called saltpeter [together with sulfur and willow charcoal, combined into a powder] so horrible a sound is made by the bursting of a thing so small, no more than a bit of parchment [containing it], that we find [the ear assaulted by a noise] exceeding the roar of strong thunder, and a flash brighter than the most brilliant lightning." In the early 20th century, British artillery officer Henry William Lovett Hime proposed that another work tentatively attributed to Bacon, Epistola de Secretis Operibus Artis et Naturae, et de Nullitate Magiae contained an encrypted formula for gunpowder.
This claim has been disputed by historians of science including Lynn Thorndike, John Maxson Stillman and George Sarton and by Bacon's editor Robert Steele, both in terms of authenticity of the work, and with respect to the decryption method.
Gunpowder is classified as a low explosive because of its relatively slow decomposition rate and consequently low brisance.
Gunpowder, also known as black powder to distinguish it from modern smokeless powder, is the earliest known chemical explosive.Bombs and fire lances became prominent during the 12th century and were used by the Song during the Jin-Song Wars.The first proto-guns, known as "fire lances", were first recorded to have been used at the siege of De'an in 1132 by Song forces against the Jin.Our records show that Laura Lion is currently With your free my Free Ones acount you can get these full Laura Lion photo sets and download them as a zip file.You can also keep track of your favorite babes, bookmark links and download our porn videos.
