- A container with pressurized air explodes in the air. What would the blast radius be? Wouldn´'t it just be the radius of the sphere calculated from the average air density and the mass of the air?
Imagine a container with compressed air ruptures. Inside is a metric ton of air, just very dense. If it explodes, ignoring fragments of the container and the ground, how would i calculate the blast radius? Do I need the Volume of the container or the density? I thought it might just be the radius of a sphere of air with the same mass but "regular" atmoshperic desity. But I don´t know, which is why I´m asking it here.
