Many people think that smashing can destroy it, as it has 'fractureplanes' that make it susceptible to fracturing and shattering.However, in this exercise you have not destroyed it, you havemerely taken a larger piece and made it into smaller pieces. To truly destroy it, though, heat it to over 382…0 degrees Kelvinwith oxygen present. Essentially, that melts the carbon bonds. (MORE)
Answer: The total global nuclear arsenal is about 30,000 nuclear warheads with a destructive capacity of 5,000 megatons (5,000 million tons of TNT). An air burst (detonating a bomb above the surface) would produce far more damage and death via radioactive fallout than one detonating at ground l…evel. A single 100 megaton air burst would be enough to cause a nuclear winter and pollute the Earth for many many years. Theoretically, a 100 megaton bomb detonated below ground could produce a massive earthquake and the constant explosions of a full blown nuclear war may also cause numerous earthquakes around the globe. But this would not destroy the world nor all human life. Globally there are not enough nuclear bombs to completely kill every human. The Tsar Bomb (largest bomb ever detonated) had a fallout of 1000 square kilometres, and was 50 MT. The world is close to 150 million square kilometres, and the human population covers close to 18 million square kilometres. Therefore to get a rough idea we can say hypothetically that the 5000 megatones of nuclear warheads was 100 Tsar Bombs (the same value in megatons). If these bombs were detonated their total radioactive fallout would cover 100,000 square kilometres. It may be surprising to hear that this covers less than 1% of the area that the human population covers, which should give a general idea of the miniscule size of impact this would have on the total world's surface. Therefore it can be shown that we do not have the capacity at the moment to destory the world with nuclear warheads. However, there are factors we have overlooked, which include: - Tsar Bomb has a very small radioactive fallout in comparison with its megatone value - Nuclear wardheads can be assumed to target densly populated locations, and - Nuclear winter which would result in the radioactive fallout To put curiousty to rest, even if we replaced our Tsar Bomb equation with nuclear warheads that had a higher radioactive yield to fulfill the 5000 megatons gloabl nuclear arsenal we would still not come close to the amount of radioactive fallout required to cover the area the human population covers, let alone destroy the world. If nuclear warheads were targeted at densly populated locations it would increase the fatalities of a nuclear war, however this would still not wipe out humanity, let alone destory the world. Nuclear winter can in lamer terms be contrasted with the ice age. The ice age did not destory the world, and did not wipe out all life, therefore neither would nuclear winter. Humanity is extremley resilient, and although many of the world's population die due to starvation if they did not die from the initial nuclear war or radiation, life will find a way. ----------------------------- You forgot to take into account the amount of radiation there would be if more than one detonated at a single time. My U.S. History teacher told us that if 8 nuclear bombs went off at roughly the same time, it would kill 95% of life in planet Earth. (MORE)
Obsidian is formed and cooled so rapidly from lava that it is a glass, not crystalline in structure. The cooling is obviously very rapid and solidification could probably measured in minutes.
I do think that it would take many, because crabs don't know what mice are and therefore probably not destroy them.
I don't think that this question should ever be answered in great detail, since so crazy person out there is probably going to then blast this world to smithereens. I'm sure the amount of nuclear bombs could be calculated, but then, who on earth would want to know that? We'll all be dead and that is… that. Thankyou. (MORE)
This cannot be determined without knowing a lot more variables, including: yield per bomb, burst height/depth, "dirtiness" of the bombs (amount and type of fallout), weather. It has been calculated that about 4 to 6 atomic bombs of about 3 to 10 megaton yield detonated high in the ionosphere at c…ertain critical spots over the US at the same time would produce an EMP that would produce a surge in the power grid and also induce high currents in unshielded electronics equipment that would destroy all solid state electronics and severely damage most electrical equipment. This would certainly disable the US completely for some time leaving us open to other attacks that we would not be able to respond to. But it would not physically destroy the US. (MORE)
The formation of diamonds does not take a long time, it can actually be near to instantaneous (in geological terms). The problem in creating diamonds is to bring the raw material (carbon) into the suitable pressure range where diamond becomes the stable polymorph of carbon. Rocks from the depths whe…re these pressures are achieved are found in areas of very old continental areas (like South Africa). They are known as kimberlites - very rapidly erupting rocks that host the diamonds. If the ascend of those rocks is to slow, the diamonds convert into graphite on the way as diamond is not stable under surface conditions and when slowly being depressured and cooled the transformation to graphite can take place somewhere in the continental crust. On the surface diamonds do not transform back to graphite because the kinetics of such a transformation are inhibited (its just to cold). Kimberlites have been dated to be very old (several billion years old) but it did not take the diamonds so long to form (there are even some facilities that can industrially produce diamonds). (MORE)
It is difficult to answer how many nuclear bombs it would take todestroy England due to the fact that there are a variety ofdifferent nukes. It would most likely take around a couple ofdozen.
Most diamonds that are mined -- 75% -- are employed by industry, because diamonds are harder than any other known mineral. Over time, because of the flaws in formation of these stones, they may begin to separate at the weakest points -- the flaws -- so that the implement becomes less sharp and abl…e to perform as expected. In diamond-tipped hand-tools, this process probably takes several lifetimes, automated machine-driven tools, less time. A gem-quality diamond without any flaws -- an expensive diamond -- could be melted if you could heat it to 3820 degrees Kelvin or 3546.85 degrees Celsius or 6416.23 degrees Fahrenheit. (MORE)
5. 5 is incorrect 3-2 count is 5 pitches then a 3rd strike would make the total number possible 6 . The correct answer is 11. 3-1 count, man is on first, and 2 outs. Next pitch is a strike for a 3-2 count but the runner on first attempts to steal, but is thrown out for out number 3. Same batter co…mes up to the plate the next inning and is dealt with a 3-2 count then walks or strikes out on the next pitch. The inning before the batter was thrown 5 pitches and the next inning the batter was thrown 6 pitches for a total of 11. The previous inning at bat and the at bat the following inning counts as the same at bat. (MORE)
Five, a total of three balls and two strikes. The next pitch will either walk her, or put her out.
Too complex a question to answer. Depends on: . yields . burst heights/depths . burst slant distances . weather . Terrain . etc. etc.
It depends where the tank is hit. A direct hit to the treads will render the tank immobile. Also, the top near the crew hatches and the rear are vulnerable. However, hits to the sides and front will little no damage.
a better question would be...how many chucks does it take to chuck, and chuck a chuck norris?....the answer is: none can defeat him
It is a usually black or banded, hard volcanic glass that displaysshiny, curved surfaces when fractured and is formed by very rapidcooling of lava.

Assuming you would want to do such a stupid thing, estimates have placed the value at around 30 trillion megatons. The largest nuclear bomb, so far, is the Tsar Bomba at around 50 megatons. The Tsar Bomba is about 10 times the amount of explosives used during the second world war. So if you saved… up, and could actually buy enough, then you would need around 600,000,000,000 or 600 billion. **Please do not try this ** (MORE)
A diamond can be cut by another diamond, or polished into powder using a diamond wheel. Neither is recommended for an at-home trial.
There are many ways you can destroy it. You can throw it across the room, put it in a fire, put it through a shredder, tread on it, etc. etc.
is this a serious question?, and yes it can it and will disintegrate it! . Sunlight and an ordinary magnifying glass can destroy a diamond, they are just carbon and burn when heated enough!
If you purchased a lot of industrial diamonds -- costing about US$1.60 per pound -- and used it for target practice, you would end up with a lot of industrial diamonds in smaller pieces than the lot you started out with. If you purchased a gem-stone diamond large enough to use for target practice,… you might not be able to 'destroy' it: you might be able to split it into multiple pieces, significantly reducing its value. Or not. (MORE)
There hasn't been a test on that yet, it would also depend on how big the warheads carried were.
You can melt a diamond at 3,820 degrees Kelvin or 6416.6 Fahrenheit, or 3,547 Celsius.
No, you need a diamond pickaxe to successfully mine obsidian, and it takes 15 seconds. With anything else it take a minute, roughly. If you do not use a diamond pickaxe you will not be able to mine the obsidian.
In Minecraft, no. But in real life, yes. Diamond is a 10 on themineral hardness scale. Obsidian, a 5. Diamond is a ridiculouslydense carbon based mineral that spends millions of years formingunderground. Obsidian is black glass that formed from quicklycooled lava.
If you dynamite a diamond -- a foolish experiment at all levels: diamonds are expensive! -- what you'll end up with is lots of smaller diamonds that will be hard to find. You will not be able to 'destroy' a diamond with dynamite.
Without a diamond pickaxe, it will take 250 seconds to break and won't even drop a block. However with a diamond pickaxe, it will take 10 seconds, and the block will drop. My source : I tried it myself
Only under the most bizarre circumstances would you successfully destroy a tank with frag grenades. Frags throw off tiny bits of metal, known as shrapnel, and tanks are more than sufficiently armoured to withstand it. When tanks had been defeated by soldiers with frag grenades, it's because the sold…iers were able to climb onto the vehicle, force open the hatches, and drop the frags inside the vehicle, killing the crew. Unless some freak accident caused the ammo carried inside the tank to go off through sympathetic detonation, however, the tank itself remained fully serviceable. (MORE)
No you don't. That would make it impossible to mine diamonds. You could use a diamond pickaxe or an iron pickaxe.
Diamond is the hardest substance known to man, so it can break most materials. Obsidian is a type of volcanic glass that is very sharp and brittle. Diamond can break obsidian.
Count the number of cities and military bases in the US and assign from 1 to 12 bombs to each of these targets, depending on size. This will give a reasonable estimate. Assume bombs in the 300 KTon to 1 MTon yield range, as they do the most damage per dollar expended.
the gold pickaxe, to get it, you have to mine it w/ the iron pickaxe, which you get by crafting. to get the iron you need to get the stone pickaxe. Hope This Helps
The first question is why. The second question is also why, The third is how far are you willing to go towards the Sun to detonate the explosion. The fourth is like the second - why, The fifth is how would you deliver the payload, as a central insertion would be impossible - it would disinte…grate before it reached to core. The sixth - What sort of megatons - TNT, Semtex, C4, Nuclear? The Seventh - What sort of rocket will you use to extend the payload? The Eighth - Where in the Sun do you intend to detonate this payload. The Ninth - I assume you have a good lawyer, as if you do kill the Sun, there will be a billion law suites coming your way. At the end of the day, whatever the payload you imagine, there is not enough stuff on Earth to destroy the Sun. However if you could find 5 times the mass of the Sun in hydrogen, then we could have a party (MORE)
You will need 14obsidian if you are going to place obsidian on the corners of the portal, but if you fill in the corner of the portal with other blocks, then you will only need 10.
no you can not in the sense that they cannot blend and mix to form a new compound. you could set a combination of these stones in jewelery, though.
you will need an Iron pick axe, stone or wooden pick axes do not work.
When you start destroying a block with a pickax but you don't finish destroying it does this reduce the life of the pickax?
No, this could lead to endless pickaxe life if you switch right before the block breaks.
Yes you can. Just get an diamond ore and place it in you crafting box and diamond will be made. Then craft your pickaxe.
You will need 3 diamond and 2 sticks. Three diamond on the top row of the crafting table 000 then two sticks at the bottom middle row. 000 I I 0=Diamond I=Sticks
make a library..give the enchantment table 2 spaces up down left n right and check for enchantments...there should be higher levels
You need three diamond gems and two sticks. When in the crafting table, place the two stick in the middle column, at the bottom and in the middle of it. Place so three diamond gems on the third row.
In the very same manner you make any other pickaxe. For a diamond pickaxe, you'll need 3 diamonds and place them on the top row, filling the top row. And for the middle column, for both middle row and bottom wood, a stick. In the related links is the crafting recipe.
You need 3 Diamonds and 2 Sticks, and it must be crafted on a Crafting Table. Imagine a 3 x 3 grid. o = Diamond I = Stick u = Blank ooo uIu uIu
Unfortunately, you can't because you need Obsidian and in order to get that, you need a diamond pickaxe to mine the Obsidian.
It takes 4 minutes and 10 seconds for any other tool than a DiamondPickaxe to break an Obsidian block, and no block is dropped.
Yes, both are formed in the earth, both are considered 'rocks' andboth have translucent properties. Obsidian is glass that results from volcanic eruptions; diamondsare erupted to the earth's surface from volcanic pipes. Pipes areshaped like volcanoes, both with bases at the earth surface. Thetip of… a volcanic pipe is far below the earth surface: volcano tipssoar into the earth's atmosphere. Both form crystals, but with different structures. Obsidian is formed from felsic lava "...which is high in silica,aluminium, potassium, sodium, and calcium..." and diamonds areformed from carbon. (MORE)
Diamond has the highest melting point -- 3820 degrees Kelvin: soburning it would require an even higher heat.
Some of the best include: Efficiency V (Breaks blocks really fast) Fortune III (Triples the ore drop rates) Silk Touch I(When you break a block, you will get the block, i.e:When you break Smooth stone you will get smooth stone instead ofCobble) Unbreaking III (Makes your pick last longer)
It takes 26 diamonds to make the armour and 11 for the tools,that's 38 diamonds in total.
Diamond is 10 -- the highest rate -- on the Mohs Scale of hardness.Obsidian rates 5 to 5.5 on the same scale. 'Strong' is a different measurement, which is not typically appliedto rocks. Strength will vary from one piece of a substance to another,depending on the structural defects, so you can't rea…lly compareone substance to another. (MORE)
