"Detonation, instantaneous throughout, dynamite"

Just to split hairs:

<1,000 m/s flame front velocity = low explosive (black powder, coal dust,
gasoline/air, etc)--- (burns)

>1,000 m/s shock wave velocity = high explosive (TNT, tetryl, picric acid,
C4, etc)--- (detonates)

The three instances are;

Combustion, relatively slow burning on the surface, gasoline

Deflagration, propagation with a flame front, smokeless gun powder

Detonation, instantaneous throughout, dynamite
