yhello i wonder if one part (in the recipe like 1 part salt) is something in grams or something. i think it’s like
2 parts potassium nitrate
1 part granulated sugar
it don’t say how much. should i only take twice as much nitrate as sugar?

Don’t say stuff like “I’m a stupid newbie” or “I’m an idiot with chemistry”. This doesn’t make people feel sorry for you. Plus, when people say they don’t know how to make bombs, or they suck with chemistry, this only makes us less likely to help you. Giving chemistry illeterate people recipes, is like giving a retard a knife.  Anyways, I use 6 parst potassium nitrate, 4 parts sugar.  DO NOT heat both toghther on a stove! melt the sugar, turn off flame, add KNO3…Then insert wick while it hardens

a “part” can be any mesurment..If you put in 2 teaspoons of KNO3 in the mixture, then you put 1 teaspoon of sugar in. The parts have to be proportional
1 part = 1 teaspoon, 1 Lb.
2 pars = 2 teaspoon, 2 Lb.

thats right all recipes for bombs are suposed to be in volume though not weight

“parts” is used to describe ratios.
let’s say 1 part compound A, 5 parts compound B.
In that case there should be 5 times as much compound B as there is compound A.

“thats right all recipes for bombs are suposed to be in volume though not weight”

PLEASE tell me this was meant to be (rather poorly delivered) sarcasm.

Shoota, have you ever visited a math or science class? Are you aware that these things do exist?

I had the same problem first time I read something liek that but I guessed. You just double the amount of pottasium nitrate then u do for the sugar.

A part, get it?

If something is given in “parts”, they usually mean volume because it’s easier to measure than mass.  But if you have a “recipe” that uses “parts”, you can bet it’s not very accurate and came from someone who just tinkered around instead of understanding the chemistry behind the reaction.  Tread at your own risk (although sugar/nitrate isn’t exactly nitro).

yeah, kind like how recipes for food measure things in teaspoons, cups and shit..
Think about that bomb you were trying to make as a yummy chocolate cake.

Don’t try to eat it though…
