    Hi, i have just made a smoke bomb out of potassium nitrate and sugar.
    I have also made a pipe up and plugged one end and stored the mixture in it.
    there is a ball valve about 1/4" that i plan to open and light through that.
    Will this just create a good smoke bomb with a metal pipe or will the pressure build up and exspload, causing a bomb ?

    It will make a cloud of dense white smoke. A standard US soda can filled with the mixture produces approx. 200 cubic yards of smoke. However I must admonish you to not set it off in any enclosed area or populated zone. The police will be summoned, you will be arrested, you will most likely, in todays fear fueled climate, be charged with a terroristic act and then you will not see the light of day for 20 plus years. I have extensive knowledge in explosives and demolitions. DO NOT MESS AROUND WITH EXPLOSIVES!!! At the least you will lose your freedom. At the worst you will lose your life.

    It'll be a bomb if it's crushed extremely fine, if you use slightly crushed sugar/fertilizer in it, it'll smoke, if it's crushed to much, and to fine, it'll be a bomb. It won't become a bomb simply because you filled a pipe with it, as long as it's not glass. I have heard of people building grenades of taped glass bottles, filled with nails, with fertilizer/gasoline mix inside. They probably died during the first testrun. Or they were shot by some counter terrorist group. Eiter way, leave bombs to professionals. Or total lunatics... They tend to use bombs as well..
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    Zwolver,
    When it comes to explosives most professionals ARE lunatics... Trust me... I am a professional
