    It might seem apparent to scale like that, however an explosions diameter isn't necessarily the same as the crater due to the final yield being calculated by the actual destruction - the crater.

    The ground, or whatever volume is destroyed offers resistance unlike anything the exposed half of the explosion encounters, hence you cannot simply assume that explosion diameter = crater diameter.
    Hmmm.... Your explanation makes sense. Then I guess this calc is wrong, since I assumed explosion diameter = crater diameter.

    I haven't actually taken my time and looked at it yet, but ground work itself looks good. Not a bad attempt at any rate.
