How did the the atomic bomb create cleaner energy?

Can't see how it did directly, but I suppose you could say that the Manhattan Project spawned the nuclear industry, and nuclear power does not produce exhaust gases like fossil fuels do. Nuclear is cleaner in some ways, but one must recognise that it also does produce very dangerous waste. This can (MORE)

Who created the atomic bomb?

No single person created the atomic bomb. A large number of peopleneeded to work together on different parts of the total project toproduce a workable theory and then a functional bomb. Physically the first atomic bombs were created by the ManhattanProject, based in the USA during World War 2 and st (MORE)

Why was the atomic bomb created?

To save millions more lives that would have been spent in a drawn out conventional war with imperial Japan, the scientists in the United States (ahead of Nazi Germany, who was also working on the atomic bomb) created the bomb to escalate the war with Japan. They ignored the first bomb dropped on Hir (MORE)

When was the atomic bomb created?

Im not 100 per-cent sure, but it definetly was created after the world war one and two, i need a percific date, but not sure when.. will update when i know. :) Thanks! Ox . Assembled in 1945, tested July 16, 1945, used in combat August 6 and 9, 1945.

How much did it cost to create the atomic bomb?

The Manhattan Project cost 2 billion dollars, this includes thecost of the two bombs used as well as the test bomb. This would beabout 23 billion US dollars today. The development and productionof the delivery device (the B-29) cost more than the ManhattanProject. The vast majority of that 2 billi (MORE)

What year was the atomic bomb created?

J. Robert Oppenheimer allowed for the fact that such a bomb existed as far back as May 10th, 1945. Remember that the Manhattan Project was undertaken using the utmost secrecy. The atomic bomb was first exploded at the top secret base of Alamogordo, NM on July 16th, 1945. The bomb was first used in w (MORE)

How an atomic bomb creates so much power?

Answer . An Atomic explosion occurs from the process of nuclear fission. This is where the nucleus of an atom(the part of the the atom which contains protons and neutrons? is split. This causes neutrons to travel at high speeds, sending theme crashing in to the nucleus of other atoms, repeating (MORE)

Who created the ATOM BOMB?

The Manhattan Project , a project involving hundreds of scientists, hundreds of engineers, thousands of technicians, and tens of thousands of workers of many types (who had no idea what they were building - including my grandfather who did construction at Hanford... and even after the war ended and (MORE)

Why did Robert Oppenheimer create the atomic bomb?

The bomb was not made in 1939. It was made in 1945 at the end of WW2. Oppenheimer did not make the bomb, a very large group of scientists and technicians made the bomb. Oppenheimer was the civilian head of the group. That is analogous to saying that a single person invented the rocket that took men (MORE)

What movie is about the atomic bomb that Robert Oppenheimer created?

Find these three; PANIC IN YEAR ZERO ON THE BEACH THE DAY AFTER There is also an instructional movie I saw in Meadow bank TechnicalCollege about a medium sized hydrogen bomb dropped on London orsimilar and the death tolls, injuries, and peculiar mental effectof being where an atomic bomb has fallen. (MORE)

How much power does a atomic bomb create?

i cannot say as that depends on the details of its design, which vary significantly from bomb to bomb. however i can say that energy release and power generated are both directly proportional to yield.

How did the americans inspire oppenheimer to create the atomic bomb?

that was not necessary, he already wanted to help. however withoutgeneral groves assistance he might never have even been on theproject, his brother and wife were registered communists and he hadparticipated in communist activities in the 1930s. neither the FBInor army intelligence trusted him and n (MORE)

Does the atomic bomb create energy?

In a classical context, yes - an atomic bomb releases more energy than could by liberated through exothermic chemical reactions, and therefore the energy could be said to be created, since the classical law of energy conservation is violated. . In a quantum context, no - an atomic bomb converts pote (MORE)

Why where atomic bombs created?

Since the beginning of time man has found new and better ways of extinguishing his enemy. When OG came out with the first rock to throw, Mog found a way to throw it with a string and kill faster and better. Airplanes became the latest fashion in killing machines in WW1. In WW2 we created the atom (MORE)

How much heat can an atomic bomb create?

Atomic bombs are a perfect example of a nuclear reaction thatcauses massive destruction. Atom bombs have a power equivalent tomillions of tons of ordinary explosive. The temperatures of fusionnuclear explosions can go up into the millions of kelvin.

Did Canada create the first atomic bomb?

No. The first atomic bombs were created by the US Army Corps of Engineers, under the cover name of the Manhattan Project, during World War II. Some of the uranium ore which was refined into nuclear explosives for the bombs may have come from Canada.

How was the atomic bomb created in world war 2?

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 thereafter t (MORE)

Who created the atomic bomb that was dropped over japan?

The bomb design was done by a team of physicists lead by Dr. Oppenheimer, the leading physicist of the group. The bomb was built and parts of it all over the country and Canada. Radioactive material was gleaned in Hanford, Washington, the assembly was done in Alamogordo, New Mexico and parts were ma (MORE)

Where did Albert Einstein create the atomic bomb?

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 (MORE)

What year was the first atomic bomb created?

Research in the US and Britain started as early as 1939. Real work started when the US Army was entrusted organising the Manhattan Project, starting in 1942. The first test of a bomb, code named Trinity, was 16 July 1945.

What does the US create to beat the atomic bomb?

While there is no perfect defense against the atomic bomb, the US has at least attempted to create antimissile defense systems that can shoot down missiles before they arrive in the US with nuclear bombs. The only real defense is to keep them from arriving.

Who is credited with creating the atomic bomb?

Leo Szilard invented the atomic bomb in 1933, but no one person can be credited with creating it. Remember the US spent $2,000,000,000 on constructing and operating the huge industrial infrastructure needed to build them before a single bomb could be built!

How old was Albert Einstein when he created the atomic bomb?

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.

Did hitler create the atomic bomb?

Yes he did, Hitler and the Nazis along with many scientists including Albert Einstein did design the Atomic Bombs which was used by the US onto Japan but Germany was only near in starting production of the Atomic Bombs. When the US invaded Germany they sent the plans straight back to the US so that (MORE)

What element was used to create the first Atomic bomb?

Plutonium was used in the first A-bomb, the Trinity test of July16, 1945. Uranium, more specifically ore highly-enriched in U-235, was usedto create the "Little Boy" bomb dropped on Hiroshima (August 6,1945). The "Fat Man" dropped on Nagasaki (August 9, 1945) wasanother plutonium "implosion" bomb wi (MORE)

What two atoms are smacked together to create an atomic bomb?

That is not how atomic bombs work, atoms are not "smackedtogether". In fission bombs a neutron chain reaction triggers an exponentiallyaccelerating fission rate leading to an explosion. In fusion bombs x-rays compress and heat hydrogen triggeringthermonuclear fusion leading to an explosion.

How tall were the mushroom clouds created by atomic bombs?

The mushroom cloud of the highest yield nuclear explosion (i.e. the51 megaton Soviet Tsar Bomba in 1961) was about 40 miles tall. Lower yield explosions will have mushroom clouds that are not thattall. The bombs used in World War 2 had mushroom clouds roughly 6miles tall. Very low yields can have mu (MORE)
