Explosion is a sudden and violent release of energy which usually involves a loud noise, a bright flash of light, and a strong shock wave. Explosions can be caused by chemical reactions, mechanical failure, or by a sudden release of pressure. Explosions can cause significant damage, injury, and even death.
Implosion is the opposite of explosion. It is a process where energy is sucked inward instead of outward, leading to a decrease in pressure. This decrease in pressure often leads to the collapse of structures such as buildings. Implosions are typically caused by a vacuum created by the removal of air from a sealed structure. Implosions are generally quieter than explosions, but can still cause significant damage.
