- mengsel van licht ontvlambare ontplofbare stoffen
a mixture of potassium nitrate, charcoal, and sulfur in a 75:15:10 ratio which is used in gunnery, time fuses, and fireworks
- It exploded like gunpowder.
- Gunpowder needs to be handled very carefully.
- The Spanish soldiers used smokeless gunpowder.
- The Americans had very little gunpowder.
- They blew up the bridge with gunpowder.
- We must prevent the fire from reaching the gunpowder at any cost.
- As the popping sound of the fireworks stopped, it suddenly became quiet around me. The smell of gunpowder somehow put me in a sentimental mood.
