* it allowed people to further their imports and exports.

How it Works
Nitroglycerin,The carbon and hydrogen combine with oxygen, and the nitrogen is liberated.most true explosives contain the oxygen they need for burning in the chemical. This allows burning to occur much more quickly.You normally use a blasting cap to create a big blast. A blasting cap creates a small explosion that triggers the larger explosion in the dynamite itself
we still use dynamite today but it is used in a safer more protected way than it was used and we only let it be used by profesionals who know what they are doing.
