Hi,

Explosion is when the bomb goes off and blast is the next reaction.

Hi Schoolboy,

I agree with Alan -- you should start looking up the meaning of individual words in a dictionary. For example, you can use the one we have on our site: What does "explode" mean?

By the way, your question should read "What is the difference?"

Let me know what you think.
Many thanks,
Torsten

The "im" in "implode" means that it happens with an inward movement, and the "ex" means it happens with an outward movement (compare to Latin "ab" , German "aus" ...?)
