Transcript of The Explosive Dynamite

Alfred Nobel
Introduction To the Dynamite
For hundreds of years, the only explosive available was black powder. It was insecure and not safe. Until a man named Alfred Nobel invented the detonator that made black powder secure. After that he invented the Dynamite that will take the place of the black powder and become a popular piece of explosive that was easy to transport.
Alfred Nobel was born on October 21, 1833 in Stockholm, Sweden. When he was 9, his family moved to St. Petersburg, Russia. He was a chemist, an engineer and an inventor. He invented the Nobel Patent Detonator and DYNAMITE.
Dynamite's effect on the environment and on others.
The History of DYNAMITE
Between 1864-1870 Nobel founded 4 factories and companies all over the world. They were in Sweden, Germany, France and the U.S.A.
When Alfred Nobel died in 1896, he left behind a nine million dollar fund for the Nobel Prizes. Established to give medals to people yearly who have done something to bring peace or help others.
Dynamite causes pollution and destroys animal habitats on land, but when used underwater for fishing purposes, the job can do uncontrollable damage. The blast will shock the fish alright and bring them to the surface, but other species will be killed. Coral reefs and other parts of the environment will be damaged.
The video will show you how successful you can be when you are dynamite fishing, but also what happens to the poor fish and other organisms.
Dynamite is used mostly as an explosive equipment. It's important to miners, engineers, and rock quarries, or rock miners. Dynamite can not do as much damage as a bomb or a nuclear missile, but it is the perfect size to take down buildings or remove stumps.
Although the dynamite can help us get a job done, it can also hurt others. It is a weapon used in wars. It takes peoples' lives and buildings down. Some crazy people will try to make their own explosive and fail. in conclusion, only people who know what they are doing should use the dynamite.
The End
We hope you enjoyed!!
Nitroglycerin was discovered first by a man named Ascanio Sobrero in 1847. Alfred Nobel had met with him before.
Fun Facts:
Nitroglycerin detonates at a rate of 4900-25400 ft per second.
North America uses about 25 million lbs. of dynamite each year.
Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite.

Nobel invented the method to make the explosion using nitroglycerin safer, it was called the 'Initial Ignition Principle'. It would prevent accidents from happening in the factories.
They had originally used black powder and when that was deemed unsafe, Alfred Nobel invented Dynamite.
