The current modern ratio of 75% nitrate,15% charcoal, 10% sulfur was settled upon sometime in the mid 18th century in England. But different countries had their own formulas, which may partially account for their military success or failure.
- What was the main purpose of gun powder?
Gunpowder was first use in warfare as an incendiary, or fire-producing, compound. Small packages of gunpowder wrapped in paper or bamboo were attached to arrows and lit with a fuse. Bombs of gunpowder mixed with scrap iron would be launched with catapults.
- Does water ruin gunpowder?
Worse, black powder can be permanently ruined by water. This is because it’s a mixture of saltpeter (potassium nitrate, KNO3), sulfur, and charcoal, and saltpeter is water-soluble. If you get it wet enough, the saltpeter can be completely washed out of the mixture.
