Intro: KNO3 Smoke Bomb

Well just a video of me and my friend lighting our simplke KNO3 smoke bomb. We also made the fuse with the match head method. Should have probably bolted down the pot so it wouldnt take off.... but oh well. Thankfully, my woodshop teacher gave me a small piece of plexiglass that i was able to guard my camera with.

Fuse: Wool string coated with melted match head compound
Bomb material: 3 to 2 ratio KNO3 and Sugar. Baking Soda added t slow combustion, but reaction ended up being too spontaneous regardless... needs more baking soda...
