    Really good paper on why jumping into the pool is a much worse idea than the pool deck:

    If you're right next to it on land or in water you're dead, but with some distance, the pool will save you from the shrapnel which is realistically what kills you, so as long as your not right next to it the water is your best bet.

    The better chance should go to the one that's on land. Explosions go up naturally, the blast may be worse in water, with less energy though.

    Hey I was right! Completely wrong reasons, but still was right.

    I'm surprised at the lack of research. The US military no longer uses the Mk 2 "pineapple" style grenades (and have not for decades), generally favoring the M26 or M67 grenades, both of which have a smooth exterior, but contain a perforated coil, which fragments into hundreds fragments,( sometimes called "shrapnel"), which obviously increases hit probability.

    Also, the grenades mentioned are only fragmentation grenades. There are also smoke grenades, incendiary, gas, and flash bangs.

    1. Keep also feet close to the ground, if you don't have time for:
    2. Get a little subsurface, and cover yourself with something solid (also A-bomb defence).

    Of course the water is going to be worse to be in; water is effectively incompressible, so the explosion underwater will result in much much greater pressure waves, hence transmitting much much much greater forces on the body.

    I guess this is why dynamite fishing is so effective.

  • james the everything guy

    the water will remove most of the force of the shrapnal aka makeing it less harmful to you also coming face to face with a granade you will be dead anyways

    According to CS:GO, standing on a height above the grenade will almost always prove fatal. The safest place is to take the grenade in your face and let it explode there.

    What if you're in the water and there's no nearby land, there's a grenade, and you decide to deliberately inhale (and maybe drink) as much water as possible, then try to swim up to air before you drown?

    A human's average reaction time is around .27 seconds which leaves you with roughly 4.73 seconds to run; and the average human speed per second is 14.6-22 ft./second so you could run approximately 69.05-104.06 feet which is actually 19.84-54.85 feet away from the injury radius, and is 52.65-87.66 feet away from the killing radius of a standard U.S. military M67 grenade.

    Question. If the water slowed the bullet down fast due to resistance what effect would that have on the blast wave? Facing a grenade on land, the fragments have a effective casualty radius of 15 meters ( I looked it up, plus probably a lot further if you unlucky). So if i am like 10 or 15 meters away from a grenade in water would i be better off?
