MacGyver Season 1 Episode 12 Science Notes: Scissors

Stove Bomb

MacGyver needs a distraction to escape from a cabin in the woods (surrounded by bad guys). He puts some chemicals into an iron stove and rolls it out the door.

The stove explodes when someone shoots inside of it-it’s not because of the spark from a bullet (because they don’t really do that). No, the bullet has to puncture the can of stuff in there to mix the chemicals. That’s what causes the explosion.
