Leo Szilard invented the atomic fission bomb in 1933 inLondon while crossing a street. He applied for a patent on it in1934 and was granted that patent (GB630726) in 1936, at… which timethe British Admiralty classified the patent to prevent Nazi Germanyfrom seeing it, the patent remained classified until 1949. Szilardworked on the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos helping develop theatomic fission bomb. It is unclear exactly who invented the hydrogen fusion bomb as itcame up in many group discussions early in the Manhattan Project.Edward Teller liked to have people believe he was the inventor, butthat is unlikely. However Teller became fixated on it (calling itthe Super Bomb) to the point that he began to hinder other people'swork on the atomic fission bomb and finally Oppenheimer had tolimit Teller's access to others on the project (which Teller neverforgave him for). Before the war ended Teller had completed ahydrogen fusion bomb design that he called the Classical Super butwas not allowed to try building it. However in December 1945 andJanuary 1946 a simulation of Teller's Classical Super design wasrun on the ENIAC, but it showed the design was an unworkablefailure and serious work on hydrogen fusion bombs effectively diedat that time (although Teller persisted at working alone on them inhis spare time). In 1949 a team working on atomic fission bomb improvements at LosAlamos developed an idea to improve the core compression of anatomic fission bomb (and thus its efficiency and yield) using aconcept called "staging", where a small atomic fission bomb wouldbe used to compress a second larger atomic fission bomb thus givinga much higher yield. However the team ran into problems developingthe equations for a computational model of this design. They senttheir mathematician Stanislaw Ulam to consult with Edward Teller onthese equations. Teller immediately saw that this "staging" conceptwas the feature needed to get the high compression and temperatureneeded to finally make his hydrogen fusion bomb design workable. By1950 working together Stanislaw Ulam & Edward Teller hadinvented the modern staged hydrogen fusion bomb design (usuallycalled the Teller-Ulam configuration, although Teller kept tryingto denigrate and diminish Ulam's contributions). Note: H. G. Wells created the name "atomic bomb" for his 1914science fiction novel The World Set Free , but did not haveanything to do with their invention.
A hydrogen bomb is a fusion nuclear weapon, and the "regular" atomic bomb is a fission one. Both are an example of an "atomic bomb" in the general sense. But we know what you'…re asking, and here's the answer.. In a fission weapon, subcritical masses of fissile material (usually plutonium) are driven together with conventional explosives to cause criticality, supercriticality and the blast. In a hydrogen bomb, the only way to get things hot enough for fusion to begin to occur is by virtue of the heat generated by a fission weapon. A fission blast will, if things are set up correctly, set off a fusion blast. Big, big, big boom! That's the long and short of it. To build a hydrogen (fusion) weapon, you have to build a fission bomb "around" or "up against" components to cause fusion to occur in the heat of the fission reaction when that fission bomb goes off.. Our sun is a gigantic fusion machine. It is similar to a hydrogen bomb in that both fuse hydrogen into helium. On the sun, it happens all the time in a continuous event. Here on earth, it's a one-shot affair and a massive boom!
Einsteinium. No joke. Symbol is "Es". Named after Albert Einstein.
A hydrogen bomb works by fusing hydrogen isotopes, the product weighing less than the initial hydrogen isotopes. The difference in weight is released in energy. Its the same w…ay the sun works.. An atom bomb works by splitting a fuel apart on the atomic level, like plutonium or enriched uranium.. An H-bomb is a lot more powerful, in the mega ton range.
The 'standard' hydrogen atom has atomic number 1, atomic mass 1, no neutrons. Although there are 2 other isotopes of hydrogen: - (cant confirm name) which has atomic mass …2 and 1 neutron. - (cant confirm name) has atomic mass of 3 and 1 neutron. All isotopes have atomic number 1.
The number of protons is the same as the atomic number of an element.
Hydrogen chloride is not an element; it is a compound and has no atomic number!
An H-Bomb is 1000 times stronger than an atomic bomb. Atomic explosions are based on splitting atoms and is a fission explosion or fission bomb. The Hydrogen bomb (also called… H-Bomb) is a Fusion reaction where atoms are forced together. Atomic bombs were used in World War II, Hydrogen bombs have been tested, but not used in war.
A hydrogen or fusion bomb will be ten times more powerful than the original fission atomic bomb.
What is the name of a artificial atomic element discovered after the first hydrogen bomb explosion in 1953?
What elements besides uranium plutonium and hydrogen can be used to make atomic or thermonuclear bombs?
Ex.: neptunium, deuterium (isotope of H)
In Japan in WW2
In Decade - 1950s
The fallout of Ivy Mike contained two new elements whichwere then named einsteinium and fermium .
look on a periodic table. (it's 8 btw)

There were 2 teams that did the bulk of the development work, one at The Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton and the other at Los Alamos, NM. Thousands of scientists work…ed on these projects. Two names that pop forth as 'leaders' are Robert Oppenheimer and Edward Teller. PLZ remember that just about every major university and many companies contributed. A recently published book, Dyson's "Turning's Cathedral" gives a good firsthand account of life within the Inst of Adv Study team during WWII. Both the author's parents were deeply involved in the project and, he knew most of the players, big and small, first hand. The book itself is aimed at describing the development of computers, but computer development and the nuclear projects were so intertwined, you get a great picture of both. BTW: this NOT a 'quick read!'
