What is the name of the atomic bomb that invented by albert Einstein?
None, Einstein had no part in either inventing or making atomic bombs except to sign a letter to FDR that Leo Szilard had written. Leo Szilard is the inventor of both the atomic bomb and reactor.

Although the underlying theory of the atomic bomb workings drawsloosely from Einstein's ideas on mass to energy conversion (thefamous equation E=Mc2), he did not himself invent the atomic bombneither did he himself discover fission. Leo Szilard invented theneutron chain reaction that makes both bomb…s and reactors possible,but Einstein knew nothing of this as the British kept the patentclassified from 1936 until 1949. Einstein was an absolutepacifist and refused to participate in any type of war relatedwork. Before WWII Szilard wrote a letter and had Einstein sign it (as ifhe had written it) to warn President Roosevelt that Germany waslikely working toward the development of an atomic bomb. Shortlyafter this the US started a project to beat the Germans to thedevelopment of this weapon. The atomic bomb was the product of cooperation of many scientistsand engineers participating in the Manhattan project. Chief amongthe people who unleashed the power of the atom was RobertOppenheimer, who oversaw the project from conception to completion. Enrichment of the U-235 from U-238 was conducted at OakridgeTennessee. Harold Urey and his team at Columbia University devisedan extraction system using the principle of gaseous diffusion. Production reactors to make Pu-239 were built and operated atHanford Washington. Bomb casing development was done at Wendover Utah and in southernCalifornia. Production of different parts was contracted out to several dozencompanies. Often as the companies were not given information on thethings their part attached to (for secrecy) things did not fitright and had to be reworked in the field. For example wartimeMK-III Fat Man bombs were virtually custom built with nointerchangeable parts. Even the Plutonium core of one bomb wouldnot fit in the pit of others. (MORE)
Nope!!! I may say that he didn't really want to use the formulaE=MC (related to atomic bombs and the fusion and fission of themolecules). He advised the President of the US to use the atomicbombs int its proper uses. For short, he was not involved in themaking of atomic bombs as well as supporting t…he dropping of thosebombs in Japan... It was His theory of relativity (E=MC2) that was used in thecreation of the atomic bombs. He was greatly against using them insuch a horrible way. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Einstein had no idea that atomic bombs had even really been workedon by the US until he read the newspaper headlines on August 6,1945 announcing that one had been dropped on Hiroshima! He hadspent all of WW2 working on the equations for his Unified FieldTheory. He never advised either president Roosevelt or Truman onthe use and any weapon, let alone atomic bombs. (MORE)
No. . Leo Szilard did and patented it in England in 1934. However it wasn't until 1938 when Otto Frish in Germany discovered the material needed to make it work.
Einstein invented a refrigerator with no moving parts, thus it needed no seals which could wear out causing loss of refrigerant. While it saw no use at the time, it eventually became important to nuclear reactor cooling systems using sodium and/or potassium metal coolants. He may have invented …other things, but this is the one he is most well known for. (MORE)
No, he was a pacifist and worked on no warprojects . His only involvement with the atomic bomb was tosign a letter to FDR that Leo Szilard had written, warning that theNazis might make one first. The atomic bomb was not invented in the US or byEinstein, it was invented in London, England in 19…33 by one ofEinstein's friends - Leo Szilard while crossing a streetand patented by him in 1934. What Szilard wanted when he inventedthe atomic bomb was only to provide a better wayto transmute elements than was then available, but at thesame time he did recognize its potential for a large energy releasewhich might make it useful as a weapon. However it took 12 more years, many scientists & engineers& technicians, and an enormous investment innew industrial infrastructure before the first atomicbombs could be built. (MORE)
He didn't. He'd worked a little on the theories about energyrelease, but he had nothing to do with turning it into afunctioning weapon. Einsteins only personal involvement with The Manhattan Project wasto persuade the then president, Franklin Roosevelt, that modernresearch would be used by others to… develop an atomic bomb and thatAmerica needed to build one first.

False Einstein was looking at a glass of water on a table and noticed there was pollen on the surface and it was moving the table was not moving the glass was not moving so he came to the conclusion that the water itself was moving thus the discovery of the atom.
No he didn't. He came up with a formula which described therelationship between mass and energy (e=mc2). This showed how muchenergy would be released when mass disappeared, which is whathappens when the bomb explodes, but he didn't invent it. Leo Szilard invented the atomic bomb in 1933 and patent…ed iton June 28, 1934. The patent was granted in 1936 and immediatelysold to and classified by the British Admiralty to prevent theNazi's from seeing it. This patent however was not enough toactually construct a working atomic bomb (it only covered the chainreaction and how to calculate critical masses). The U.S. Manhattan Project was the first to design an actual atomicbomb. Einstein was a pacifist and refused to work on anywar related projects . Even if he had been willing to it wouldhave been impossible for him to pass the security checks the Armyand FBI required to get the clearance needed for work on theManhattan Project. Leo Szilard was one of many scientists working on the Manhattan Project. (MORE)

He didn't, he had no interest in the atomic bomb. His only involvement was when Leo Szilard discussed the possibility of atomic bombs with him, was that they both agreed that the Nazis should not have them and that the Allies should study their feasibility. He then signed a letter to FDR that Szi…lard had already written in his name that warned of this possibility and suggested a project be started to study them. (MORE)

The only participation in the development of the atomic bomb that Einstein had was to sign a letter written by Leo Szilard warning FDR of the possibility that the Nazis might do it first.
His theory about atomic fusion helped in the development of the bomb. He also convinced the president to develop the research in it. In the last 25 years of his life he questioned himself concerning the use and development of the bomb and was unhappy that he had helped build the theory and foundatio…n of atomic theory. (MORE)
Never. It was invented and patented by Leo Szilard in 1934 and built by the US Manhattan Project between 1943 and 1945. Einstein's main contribution was simply to sign a letter Szilard wrote to FDR warning of the dangers if the Germans built one first.
Nothing, other than signing a letter written by Leo Szilard to FDR warning of the risk that the Nazis might make one first.
Einstein was an atomic scientist inasmuch as he advanced the field of atom theory. His paper on "Brownian Motion" was one of the first to describe the free flowing motion of atoms in space. This question suffers from a question of intent. The short and long of it is yes, Einstein was a research …theorthetical atomic scientist. (MORE)
Albert Einstein did not in fact create the atomic bomb, he discovered the formula E=mc2. The bomb itself was created during World War Two by the scientists of the Manhattan Project. Einstein did sign a letter to (then) President Roosevelt urging that this work begin, but the effort most likely would… have begun even without Einstein's initial endoresement. Einstein was aghast that his work was used for what he considered a terrible evil. (MORE)
No, he had no involvement whatsoever with the project. Einstein was a pacifist and refused to work on any war related project himself. His only involvement was to sign a letter written by Leo Szilard (the inventor of the atomic bomb) that was delivered to FDR warning of the danger if the Nazis bui…lt it and recommending starting a project.

Albert Einstein was the first to prove the existence of atoms inhis seminal paper on Brownian motion (this, incidentally, alsoproved the existence of molecules). He is probably the mostinfluential figure in the history of Quantum Mechanics, beginningwith his 1905 paper on the Photoelectric Effect. T…his seminal workrevolutionized physics by postulating that light was a particle.He, more than Max Planck, introduced the concept of thequantization of energy in atomic mechanics. Einstein proposed thephoton, the first force-carrying particle discovered for afundamental interaction, and put forward the notion ofwave-particle duality, based on sound statistical arguments 14years before De Broglie's work. He was the first to recognize theintrinsic randomness in atomic processes, and introduced the notionof transition probabilities, embodied in the A and B coefficientsfor atomic emission and absorption. He also preceded Born insuggesting the interpretation of wave fields as probabilitydensities for particles, photons, in the case of theelectromagnetic field. Finally, stimulated by Bose, he introducedthe notion of indistinguishable particles in the quantum sense andderived the condensed phase of bosons, which is one of thefundamental states of matter at low temperatures. His work onquantum statistics in turn directly stimulated Schrodinger towardshis discovery of the wave equation of quantum mechanics. It wasonly due to his rejection of the final theory that he is notgenerally recognized as the most central figure in this historicachievement of human civilization.

Einstein didn't invent the atom bomb. He might have felt regretthat it had been invented, but he had no personal part in itscreation.
Some people think that he was however it was not in any records of his that he did help invent the atomic bomb. improvement basically, Einstein wrote a letter to president roosevelt, he told roosevelt that he believed that soon an incredible weapon could be created by "the power of the atom", …this was in 1939, this was einsteins only involvement in the Manhattan project (atom bomb project), he never actually participated in the building or designing of the atomic bombs. He simply let America know they needed to build this before Germany or japan. (MORE)
Einstein's only involvement with the atomic bomb was to sign aletter written by Leo Szilard (the inventor of the atomicbomb, but Einstein didn't know this because the patent wasclassified and thus could not be discussed) that was addressed toFDR warning that the Nazis might be working on them. The… USmilitary considered Einstein an enemy alien , so he couldnot have been granted a clearance to work on the project. AlsoEinstein was a complete pacifist and refused to do any war relatedwork of any kind. One thing that Einstein did invent was a refrigeration systemwith no moving parts , so it did not require any seals toprevent leaks. He did this because all the refrigerants availableat the time were highly toxic and/or flammable making leaks verydangerous. However it saw little use at the time because not longafter that freon was invented which was nontoxic and nonflammable.However his invention was used in the cooling systems of severalnuclear reactor designs beginning in the 1950s.

Albert Einstein's assistance to the Manhattan Project was in the form of a letter he wrote to FDR, encouraging him to persue research in atomic weapons. Although Einstein was a pacifist and was strongly opposed to war, he viewed Nazi-Germany as the greater threat and used his prestige as a physicis…t to encourage atomic research. As a Jewish-German, Einstein had seen first-hand what the Third Reich was willing to do, and did not want them being the sole owners of atomic weapons. (MORE)

He played a role in its creation by sending a letter to convince president Roosevelt to start work on a nuclear weapon, and many of his theories went into the making of it. Einstein himself was a pacifist and regretted for the rest of his life that he had influenced the creation of nuclear weapons.
Albert Einstein, never made the Atom. Einstein main claim to fame is with his Theory of Relativity. John Dalton was one of the earliest men to Discover the properties of the atom
no he did not . Einstein was a pacifist and did neither weapons nor war work of any kind.
Never, he did not work on the Manhattan Project. His only involvement was to sign a letter to FDR about the possibility of such bombs that Leo Szilard had written.
Mainly because when atomic bombs are built and used, people can get hurt, which went fundamentally against Einstein's personal principles.
This question is badly worded, Albert Einstein did not invent 'the bomb'. He discovered the principals that the atom bomb was founded on, e=mc2 which shows that matter can be turned into energy. i dont actually know what year this was but it will be on the internet
He didn't He came up with a formula which decribed the relationship between mass and energy (e=mc 2 ). This showed how much energy would be released when mass disappeared, which is what happens when the bomb explodes, but he didn't actually do it.
Albert Einstein did not create the atomic bomb. The atomic bomb was invented by a group of scientists in the United States. The majority of the research and testing went on at the weapons research and design laboratory at Los Alamos, New Mexico. Einstein did, however, send a letter to president Roos…evelt encouraging the United States to begin research on an atomic weapon, and many of Einstein's theories went into the creation of it. . The atomic bomb was not invented in the US, it was invented in London, England in 1933 by Leo Szilard and patented by him in 1934. However it took 12 more years, many scientists & engineers & technicians, and an enormous investment in new industrial infrastructure before the first atomic bombs could be built. (MORE)
Albert Einstein did not work on the Manhattan Project, the US efforts to develop the atomic bomb. He was denied sufficient security clearance to do so. He did however write a letter to President Roosevelt, composed by his friend Leo Szilard, who did work on the project. Einstein was a teacher.
Oppenheimer as Einstein was not directly involved in the Manhattan Project he only supported it initially and encouraged Roosevelt to proceed in a letter.
He didn't. All he had to do with the atomic bomb was signing a letter written by Leo Szilard that was sent to FDR.
Einstein did not personally make any atomic bombs, nor was he particularly involved in the Manhattan Project. (He couldn't obtain the necessary security clearance. and scientists in the project were actually forbidden from consulting with him about it.) The names of the first two bombs were "the ga…dget" and "Little Boy." The gadget was the one used in the Trinity test firing, and was a test of the design used for the third bomb, "Fat Man" (Little Boy was considered a simple enough design to not need a test firing, but the gadget and Fat Man were more complicated.) (MORE)
he did not want to see the mass deaths that would result and also he was working on a nuclear bomb that would be more effective.
Einstein had no direct involvement in the building of the first atomic bombs. Although Einstein's theories formed the basis of the physics involved in creating them, it was primarily Oppenheimer and Fermi that lead the team that actually designed and built the weapons.
About the time Leo Szilard told him about it and had Einstein sign the letter Szilard had written to FDR.
"On August 2, 1939, just before the beginning of World War II, Albert Einstein wrote to then President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Einstein and several other scientists told Roosevelt of efforts in Nazi Germany to purify uranium-235, which could be used to build an atomic bomb. It was shortly thereafte…r that the United States Government began the serious undertaking known then only as "The Manhattan Project." Simply put, the Manhattan Project was committed to expediting research that would produce a viable atomic bomb." Check the related links below to find the source of this information. (MORE)

Albert Einstein did not invent the Atomic Bomb. In 1915 Einstein worked out the equations which made it possible for people to create an Atomic Bomb. In 1938 Heisenberg figured out the engineering which made such a bomb possible. Einstein heard about Heisenberg's work on behalf of Hitler and sent a… letter to President Roosevelt warning him about the dangerous nature of such a bomb. (MORE)
It came to a point that he supported the bomb. He indeed fled Germany when he saw the militarization in that country. Most of the Jews who did not fled Germany were patriots from the first war. When their eyes were opened, it was too late.
Hitler never had an atomic bomb . Leo Szilard wrote a letter to FDR about his concern that Germany might build one and Hitler would use it . Szilard wrote the final draft of this letter with Einstein's name on it and had Einstein sign it as Einstein was better known than he was . Szilard and …Einstein arranged to have a banker friend of FDR hand carry the letter to FDR, they did not talk to FDR personally (MORE)
Einstein understood that an atomic reaction would release anincredible amount of energy in a very brief time. This principlewas used to create the atomic bomb.
Professor Dr. Albert Einstein did not work on the atomic bomb. His theory was used in the creation of the bomb. He had suggested that the energy in mass was equal to mass times the square of the speed of light (in correct units). Thus, even though only a small fraction of the available mass would be… converted to energy, the amount of energy was huge because of the square of a very large number. (MORE)
Einstein's only participation was to sign a letter written by Leo Szilard (using Einstein's name) warning FDRthat Nazi Germany probably already had a project to build atomicbombs (which they did at the time) and warning of the consequencesif they did first and requesting that FDR begin a project …trying tomake one first. When FDR received this letter he authorized a preliminary study ofthe issue and budgeted $6000 to it. (MORE)
