Unit t [TNT]
Name tonne
Category Energy
Details In the field of Energy, a unit called "tonne of TNT" (t [TNT]) is used to express the amount of energy released in an explosion, specifically based on the energy released by the detonation of one tonne (1000 kilograms or 2204.62 pounds) of trinitrotoluene (TNT).

TNT is a chemical compound and an explosive material that has been widely used since the late 19th century. Its relatively stable nature under normal conditions, high energy content, and the predictability of its explosive power has made it a convenient standard for measuring the energy release of other explosive materials and events, such as nuclear explosions, asteroid impacts, and volcanic eruptions.

1 tonne of TNT is approximately equivalent to the release of 4.184×10^9 joules of energy. This unit is often used to express the energy release in large-scale events, such as the Hiroshima nuclear bomb explosion, which had an energy release of about 15 kilotons (15,000 tonnes) of TNT, or the Tunguska meteor impact event, which released an estimated energy equivalent to 10-15 megatons (10-15 million tonnes) of TNT.
