Mustard Gas

By: Kylie Mellman, pd. 5

Mustard Gas was used to...

* Blind, injure,or even kill entrenched defenders

* The high concentration of acidity (sulfur in mustard gas) in the gasses vary in how badly it will effect the person inhaling or getting the gas or chemical on them

How does it work?

* Often times grenades were filled with the gas or chemical, and thrown on the defending side.

* Other times, the gas could be filled into canisters or bombs for planes or zeppelin to drop.

* Since mustard gas is heavier than air, it was easily poured into canisters through pipes

The affects of Mustard Gas

With this chemical being one of the most harmful, I believed it was successfully used to be continued its use even for today´s chemical warfare
