"...the table behind which Harry was standing blew up: the force of the explosion slammed him into the wall and he felt his wand leave his hand as the cloak slipped off him."

The Expulso Curse[3][5] (Expulso[1]) is a curse[3] used to produce immense explosions, blasting the target apart[1] with a burst of blue light[4]; it has enough force to throw people into walls[1]



Latin expulso, meaning "expel".
