The latest update of Terraria introduced a new form of explosive: simply called 'explosives'. It is crafted with 3 pieces of Dynamite and 1 piece of wire. Unlike dynamite and bombs, explosives require a trigger. This makes them ideal for traps, as they can be linked to a pressure plate, lever or switch.
Similar to both Bombs and Dynamite, explosives remove blocks. I have discovered recently that no research has gone into the blast radius of these three items. Intrigued, I set out to document them.
- To document the blast radius of bombs, dynamite and Explosives.
- To see if there is a difference between the blast radius for dynamite and explosives.
- To see how much *ahem* "Bang for your buck" you get, dividing cost by blast radius.

To help the Terraria community, I've decided to try to find out the exact blast radius of bombs and dynamite, and to see if explosives (Made from 3 dynamite and 1 wire) have a similar or greater blast radius than dynamite.
I will try to go about this correctly, as a scientist should.
I personally prefer chemistry to physics, but I'll ignore it for once, since it means I get to make things go boom.
I'll try to document my experiments, with images if possible.
I'd like to know of other peoples experiments in Terraria for the wiki. I'd love to hear from you if you've already done something similar to what I'm doing now.
