So I'm taking a "Chemistry of Explosives" class, and I'm reading something that confuses me. The book is copywritten by the Royal Society of Chemistry

The rate of deflagration for a substance to be classified as low order detonation is 1000-1800 m s^-1 where ^-1 is a -1 coefficient.

What does that mean? Is it just another way of writing meters per second?

The mm form would be (1000-1800 x 10^3 mm s^-1)
My God, it's full of stars!
isn't there a math/science thread?

Everything writes m/s as ms^-1.
At least, is seems like it

yeah, ^-1 just means "to the power of minus one"
