Question about NOS (nitris oxide)

What is a "shot" of NOS. When people say like 100 shot of NOS or 30 shot of NOS what does that mean. Is it a measurement, IF IT IS what does it go by

I think a "shot" of Nitrous means how much extra horsepower, its supposed to produce.

100 shot = 100hp
30 shot = 30hp

Oh by the way its Nitrous... Not NOS, Nos is a brandname!! (I don't care, but plently of people seem too to get annoyed it you call it NOS)

It is really fucking stupid if you think about it. I mean when you got your first car you didnt go around telling everyone "im getting Porsche...dude im getting Porsche" when really your getting a ford Escort. But of course you say Porsche cus you have heard it mentioned allot, and its a dope ass car. Pluss its not "Dude im getting nawzz" anyway. Its "Dude Im getting A nos KIT".
