1

## symbol detonation ratio of a circle to diameter (3.1459265).

### PI

2

## perimeter of a circle.

### circumference

3

## length of a straight line through the center of an object.

### diameter

4

## half the distance of a diameter

### radius

5

## half the distance that the explosive force of an explosive breaches through. (3 dimensional) (AFTER THE ROUNDING RULES)

### breaching radius

6

## lacking depth, A line example; the horizon

### one dimensional

7

## area with no depth only surface. Example; the top of a table.

### two dimensional

8

## area plus depth. Example; a brick

### three dimensional

9

## surface set in 2 dimensional. Length x width.

### area

10

## amount of space occupied by 3 dimensional objects. Length x width x height.

### volume

11

## rectangle with equal four sides, no depth (2 dimensional)

### square

12

## object with 6 sides has depth (3 dimensional)

### cube

13

## a circle with depth. Example; a roll of quarters (3 dimensional)

### cylinder

14

## a cylinder with a triangular top. Example; ice cream cone

### cone

15

## a factor of a number that the root is itself times itself. Example; square root of 9=3. 3 x 3 = 9.

### square root

16

## the factor of a number when the root is itself times itself. Example; the cube root of 27=3. 3 x 3 x 3 = 27.

### cube root

17

## a numerical representation indicating a quotient of two numbers. Example; 1/2, 1/4. A portion, A fragment.

### fraction

18

## a part of a fraction above line and signifies the number to be divided by the denominator.

### numerator

19

## part of a fraction below line and that fractions divisor of the numerator.

### denominator

20

## fragment or part of a whole number expressed in numbers by percentage. Example; .12, .32

### decimal

21

## entity not a fragment.

### whole number

22

## taking the first number passed the decimal point and rounding it up to the nearest whole number. Example; 3.12=4, 4.56=5, 3.78=4, round down 4.49=4, 2.15=2

### round up

23

## taking the numbers two places passed the decimal and rounding up to the nearest whole number if it is .50 or above and rounding down to the nearest whole number if it is .49 or lower. Example; round up 4.56=5, 3.78=4, round down 4.49=4, 2.15=2

### round off

24

## change from solid to gaseous state relatively slow (burning)

### deflagrate

25

## instantaneously or rapid change from solid to a gaseous state.

### detonate

26

## consist of 8 blocks of M5A1 C-4 PKG. wt 20 lbs

### M-37 satchel charge

27

## consist of 16 blocks M112 C-4 PKG. wt 20 lbs

### M183 satchel charge

28

## consist of one or more blocks of explosive. Example; you have 4 trees to destroy, each tree takes 4 blocks of TNT. To destroy all 4 trees, take 4 charges, each charge consisting of 4 (1lb) blocks of TNT for a total of 16 (1lb) blocks of TNT.

### charge

29

## single entity of explosive

### block package/stick

30

## M60 used for non-electrical firing system. M-81 used for MDI.

### fuse igniter

31

## modern demolition (initiators)

### MDI

32

## consist of an initiator (usually M-60), time fuse (usually M700), and a non-electric blasting cap (usually M-7)

### non-electric firing system

33

## consist of power source (usually CD-450), firing wire, and an electric cap (usually M-6).

### electric firing system

34

## det cord tied into itself in a circle in between charges from which branch lines are tied off.

### ring main

35

## strip of det cord with a priming knot on one end. used to prime a charge and tie into a ring main.

### branch line

36

## a knot used to take the place of a blasting cap to prime a charge. Example; uli, spiral, double overhand knot, four wrap, eight wrap, wiseman knot, det cord lace, and sliding uli.

### priming knot

37

## used to connect det cord together and tie in firing systems to ring main.

### square knot

38

## quickest method of constructing a charge and attacking a traget. Most amount of explosives, conventional charge, external charge.

### "work quickly"
