I have one question....How can nitro be both highly explosive and also be used for treating heart patients? How can nitroglycerin be both highly explosive and also be used for treating heart patients?

nitro works as a vasodilator

nitro works as a vasodilator meaning it dilates the blood vessels, allowing blood to flow better and avoiding the likes of heart attacks and coincidentally, impotence in men (Viagra is nothing more than a vasodilator, and its impotence-overcoming properties were discovered by accident when it was being tested for heart patients and many of the male subjects were getting erections) . you're right that nitro is an explosive too, but not only is there a slight difference in the molecular structure between the explosive and the medication, there's also the fact that as a medication, nitro is what's called a 'prodrug' meaning that when it enters your body, in order for it to do anything at all, it has to be metabolized into something else first by the liver. prodrugs are common in pharmacology.
