The purpose was to end the war soon and collapse Japan's means to make war ever again. In that sense, those bombs brought the needed culmination but with a heavy price.
boom This is true, however I don't think boom is descriptive enough. The bomb actually detonated in the air for maximum effect. Inside the bomb, an atom was launched at som…e plutonium, splitting atomic bonds and releasing lots of energy. What resulted was an explosion on a scale that had never been seen before, temperatures of 1 million C at the blast zone. Anyone within two miles of ground zero were instantly turned to dust. Outside of that range tens of thousands received severe burns and died from them. Those who did not die from burns died from radiation poisioning soon after. Those further out were not killed by the blast, but died of radiation related diseases and birth defects for decades after. Meanwhile servicemen told to look for the light of the bomb exploding were not warned and hundreds were blinded permantly. The city of Nagasaki itself was gone, only skeletal buildings remaining at the edges of the blast zone. When the bomb went off, for just a fraction of a second the door to hell was opened and some very nasty stuff escaped. Both cities, Hiroshima or Nagasaki, the shadow of a men is burned into a building for all time because of the heat of the blast. In closing, consider this. Today we have atomic weaponry that is hundreds, thousands of times more power than those two bombs. Pray no one is every stupid enough to fire or drop one.
After the first, it was like we shot Japan. They were horrified andabsolutely stunned. Once the second one was dropped, they staggeredmassively. We had threatened to drop a th…ird (which ironically wedidn't have) and they surrendered.
August 6, 1945 Hiroshima, and August 9, 1945 Nagasaki.
There were two atomic bombs dropped on Japan. These devastated the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Japanese government realised that they had no defence against bombs on… that scale and soon afterwards they surrendered to the United States.
In a 1 mile radius of ground zero, almost all buildings were destroyed by the blast of x-ray heated air that caused an enormous shockwave, which travelled at the speed of soun…d. The fireball, which was roughly 370m in diameter, instantly killed any people within, and ignited all flammable material. With fuel readily available from destroyed buildings, a firestorm quickly spread to the entire 2 mile diameter of the shockwave. Around 140,000 people are thought to have died from the effects of the bomb.
Well it could squash part or all of you as one did to my brother when he was in the Army in Germany and they were moving a MADM from one truck to another and it slipped fallin…g on one of his fingers, squashing the finger flat like stepping on a banana. Of course that probably wasn't what you were asking about. Generally when attacking towns or cities nuclear weapons don't drop on anything , instead they explode a few thousand feet above the target to spread the damage out to the widest possible area.
Lots of innocent people died.
It surrendered and the US spent billions on restoring it to a functioning industrial society.
Both cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, were destroyed after the bombs.
In World War 2
The dropping of the atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki resulted in the near immediate surrender of the Japanese thus ending the war in the pacific and subsequently the w…ar as well. This is as the war in Europe had already been won. Japan swore to fight to the very last man and this they meant which can be seen in the pacific landings were often the case despise an imminent defeat. From this without the atomic bomb a full scale invasion would of been necessary for victory which would have cost more lives than those lost to the bomb and so the bomb saved lives over all.

The atomic bomb was dropped on japan which caused the island to sink a bit, and because of that many scientist believe that one day, it will completly sink. Also, it killed al…ot of people, made japan surrender and caused a disease.
In Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bombings
Chaotic conditions made accurate accounts most difficult. Some victims were vaporized instantly, many survivors were horribly disfigured, and death from radiation was uncertai…n-it might not claim its victims for days, weeks, months, or even years. The initial death count in Hiroshima, set at 42,000-93,000, was based solely on the disposal of bodies, and was thus much too low. Later surveys covered body counts, missing persons, and neighborhood surveys during the first months after the bombing, yielding a more reliable estimate of 130,000 dead as of November 1945. A similar survey by officials in Nagasaki set its death toll at 60,000-70,000. (Its plutonium bomb was more powerful, but its destructive range was limited by surrounding hills and mountains). Additional counts indicated high levels of short-term mortality in both cities: -Over 90% of persons within 500 meters (1,600 ft.) of ground zero in both cities died. -At 1.5 km (almost one mile), over 2/3 were casualties, and 1/3 died. -Of those at a distance of 2 km (1.2 mi.), half were casualties, 10% of whom died. -Casualties dropped to 10% at distances over 4 km (2.4 mi.)

it falls. what happens later depends on its fusing and any retarding devices that might be provided.
