What do you mean by "revolve"?

All explosions, nuclear or conventional, produce a "mushroom cloud" its just that the yield of a nuclear explosion is so much higher that makes the cloud bigger, more obvious, and more persistent.

The mushroom cloud is formed by convection currents from the heat of the fireball: the stem is created by the updraft of the fireball rising through the cool atmosphere, the cap is a toroidal convection cell with the fireball at the center - air is drawn in at the bottom, heated by the fireball, rises above the fireball and on encountering cool air again cools and spreads forming the top of the cap, eventually it spreads enough that there is no more hot air rising under it to hold it up and it falls forming the sides of the cap, usually some of this falling air gets sucked back in and reheated by the fireball as it gets to the bottom of the cap.

Why does a mushroom cloud form after a nuclear bomb explosion?

Gravity if forming the clouds from the atomic bomb.


Why does mushroom cloud form in after a nuclear explosion?

For the same reason they form following any explosion: heated air from explosion is lighter than surrounding air, making it buoyant and it therefor rises. The cloud is visible because of entrained debris, vaporized metal, smoke from fires, etc. produced by the explosion (nuclear or not). Nuclear mushroom clouds are simply more spectacular because more energy was released, making them hotter.


Which type of nuclear detonation creates a huge crater and carries millions of tons of earth into the air in a mushroom could?

What produces a mushroom cloud?

A mushroom cloud is the product of a very large explosion, such as from the detonation of a nuclear weapon. The cloud itself is formed by the rapidly rising ball of hot gasses.

What type of explosion causes a mushroom cloud?

Any explosion exposed or vented to the atmosphere. The bigger the explosion the bigger and more well formed the mushroom cloud.

What was the mushroom cloud?

a phenomenon produced by every explosion (not just nuclear) when air heated by the fireball rises rapidly, sometimes lifting dirt, etc.


Radioactive particles stirred up after a nuclear explosion?
