Gunpowder, also commonly known as black powder to distinguish it from modern smokeless powder, is the earliest known chemical explosive. It consists of a mixture of sulfurcarbon (in the form of charcoal), and potassium nitrate (saltpeter). The sulfur and carbon act as fuels while the saltpeter is an oxidizer.[1][2] Gunpowder has been widely used as a propellant in firearmsartilleryrocketry, and pyrotechnics, including use as a blasting agent for explosives in quarryingmining, building pipelinestunnels,[3] and roads.
