HAZMAT Class 1-1 Explosives.png



Trinitrotoluene (abbreviated TNT) is a relatively hot burning pressure explosive. When it explodes, TNT forms FIRE (16.6%), SMKE (16.6%) and EMBR (4.4%) for effect.
Upon detonation, most of the TNT is removed (62.16%) without creating any particles.

When detonated, each particle of TNT adds 0.5 pressure to the cell it occupied.
Then, depending on which particle was generated (if any at all), temperatures rise by 2226.6 degrees (Fire and Smoke particles) or 3059.85 degrees. (Embers/Sparks)

However, directly after the reaction the mean temperature rise is only 1409 degrees. This is mainly due to temperature being dissipated into the surrounding particles during the reaction.
Since 62.16% of the TNT is destroyed, only 37.84% of the temperature generated will remain after detonation and the other is lost to the void.

Depending on the heat conductivity of elements in contact with the TNT, more or less heat will be transferred to that element. A higher heat conductivity means a lower temperature overall after detonation.

Upon ignition, the smoke is almost instantaneously converted into Fire (351.85 °C) because of the surrounding heat.
Also, due to the high temperatures, some Fire will be converted into PLSM. (2499.85 °C)
