Atomic Bombs

Atomic bomb is an explosive device in which a large amount of energy is released through nuclear reactions. This makes an atomic bomb, more properly called a nuclear weapon, a much more powerful device than any conventional bomb containing chemical explosives. The first Atomic Bombs were used during World War 2 in 1945 by the US onto 2 Japanese cities.
No, the people apart of the Manhattan Project did.
People not killed outright got injured with deep burns, as well ascuts and bruises. Later on rain fell and it was radioactive.Radiation caused vomiting, nausia, headache, and a loss of whiteblood cells.
Hiroshima: August 6, 1945 Nagasaki: August 9, 1945
The atomic bombs were aimed at Nagasaki and Hiroshima and they hit what they were aimed at. They were intended to show the Japanese populous they needed to tell their leaders to stop the war. It did have its affect once Emperor Hirohito saw that the American were correct. One bomb did a lot of...
The cost to completely develop the nuclear weapon from the beginning of the war until 1945 cost America $20 billion. This includes the money they needed for research, materials, plants, and people. The bombs themselves cost $5 billion each, essentially making them the most expensive bombs to ever be...
90,000-166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000-80,000 in Nagasaki.
Ending thw war sooner and saving tens of thousands of Allied and Japanese lives......
Well they were made by some one who had a braina nd knew how to use it XD
Nuclear weapons have only been used in combat on Japan.
This question cannot be answered without knowledge of the future.
Hitler started world war 2 then japan got involved
The atomic bombs were dropped on Japan in order to end the war asquickly and painlessly as possible. Owing to the fact that everyother viable option would have resulted in even more bloodshed, thedecision to drop the bombs ultimately saved lives.
Truman was president when the decision was made, FDR had passed away.
After the discovery of fission in the late 1930s, Nazi German began developing an atomic bomb in April 1939. (luckily the program failed). The US Army then started the "Manhattan Project" soon after. The first atomic bomb was detonated by the US Army on July 16th, 1945. (code name "trinity"). , the...
At the end of World War II, few questioned Truman's decision to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Most Americans accepted the obvious reasoning: the atomic bombings brought the war to a more timely end. They did not have a problem with over one hundred thousand of the enemy being...
According to the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the population in Japan in October 1940 was estimated to be 73,114,308; in November 1945 the population was estimated at 71,998,104. Japan was visibly a thriving country that was hit very hard by the bombing.
The first bomb exploded, the Trinity test bomb, used plutonium. The first bomb deployed, dropped on Hiroshima, used uranium 235. The second bomb deployed, dropped on Nagasaki, used plutonium 239.
Advantages: The Atomic Bomb stopped thewar on 14th of August when Japan finally surrendered. This wasnecessary as the brutal war costed many lives from both sides. Theend of the war saved a lot of money for the countries in war. AlsoJapan wouldn't surrender otherwise but to defeat US. They...
The purposes of atomic bombs are now to ensure mutually assureddestruction. So many countries have atomic bombs now that if theywere to launch one they would be destroyed by someone else.
because japan bombed us
To "convince" Japan to surrender in WWII.
Answer . No. Truman had given permission to use the bomb before the warning to surrender was given, so their answer didn't matter. Lives were sacrificied with a bomb that was not fully understood.
The atomic bomb has advantages and disadvantages and sometimes they are the same thing. . The cost of building, housing, maintaining and guarding an atomic missile bomb is astronomical. . The dangers involved in accidental radiation is minimal but still there. If the bomb is set off radiation is a...
the atomic bomb was the means by which we entered the nuclear age. the atomic bomb is a tool , the nuclear age is a period of time .
In WW2, four are documented: Gadget, Little Boy, Fat Man, and an unnamed one that didn't get used. Design yields all about 20 kilotons. Time span: 2 months. . Total, well over 200,000 on all sides including retired devices whose materials were remanufactured into newer generations of bombs. Design...
well many cities have but it is hiroshima
"fat man" was the name of the atomic bomb dropped on Nagaski. "little boy" was dropped in Hiroshima.
A couple of prominent physicists wrote up a warning letter, hadit signed by Albert Einstein, and had it delivered to US presidentFranklin D. Roosevelt, urgently warning of the potentialdevelopment of a new type of extremely powerful bombs, in August of1939. . In June of 1941, the Office of...
Hiroshima - august 6 1945 Nagasaki - august 9 1945 For six months, the United States had made use of intense strategicfire-bombing of 67 Japanese cities. Together with the UnitedKingdom, and the Republic of China the United States called for asurrender of Japan in the Potsdam Declaration. The...
Yes, although both the Germans and the Japanese were working on it.
The Little Boy weapon which was the first of the atomic bombs that was deployed (and was dropped on Hiroshima) weighed some 8,818.49 pounds, or 4,000 kilograms. A link is provided below.
Too many to list by name (including my grandfather , whoworked at the Hanford Site oiling machines from the summer of 1944through February 1945, without ever having any idea of what thepurpose of Hanford was or that its product was part of a verypowerful bomb).
It looked 500 times worse than Haiti
There is no reason for its use.
It devastated two of Japan's major cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and showed the Japanese that the U.S. were prepared to stop the war by any means. Emperor Hirohito, knowing that he could not win against such technological superiority, agreed to the terms of surrender, effectively ending the second...
Alamogordo, New Mexico was the city that grew around the atomic bomb production. . Wrong , Alamogordo had no connection with the atomic bomb. The city is Los Alamos , which had existed prior to WW2 as a boys school.
Most were killed from the explosion, some survived but may have short term or long term radiation illness which can be terminal.
Among others, when Truman was advised of the successful test of the A-Bomb he was in Potsdam, Germany, meeting with Stalin and Churchill. Truman issued the "Potsdam Declaration" calling on Japan to surrender immediately, or face "prompt and utter destruction", "the like of which the world has never...
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.
The reason why the US used the atomic bomb against Japan was that the US wished to bring the war to a more rapid conclusion, in order to avoid giving the Soviet Union the opportunity to invade and take over Japan, as the Soviet Union had already done in Eastern Europe as a by-product of their fight...
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...
Most of the American military, and the general public, were strongly in favor of the use of the atomic bomb in World War II. The enormous casualties that would have resulted from invading Japan would certainly have exceeded anything done by the atomic bombings. A few in the military and out in the...
Nagasaki and Hiroshima Japan were bombed with the atomic bombs Fat Man and Little Boy.
Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000-166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000-80,000 in Nagasaki, [1] with roughly half of the deaths in each city occurring on the first day.Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed...
Niels Bohr, one of the main developers of quantum mechanics in the 1920s & 1930s.
"Little Boy" was the bomb dropped first, on Hiroshima. It was a Uranium bomb, the nuclear material being Uranium-235. The bomb was not "filled" with it - there was only about 140 pounds of U-235. There was a big mechanism inside the 10 foot long bomb. A sphere of the U-235 was fired down a "gun...
There is no answer there is still debate about it. . I say yes , it saved at least an order of magnitude more lives than it cost and shortened the war by more than a year. Also if we had not used them, when the war was over congress would have had hearings on why $2,000,000,000 had been wasted on...
When the war was over in Europe because Germany surrendered, the Allies wanted to end the war quick. However, Japan was still a strong force and occupied many islands surrounding it. The Allies, especially the United States, were losing thousands of men trying to conquer each island. The United...
The science fiction writer H. G. Wells in 1914 in his novel TheWorld Set Free .
\n. \nThe morality presented was that dropping the bomb would end the war and save more lives because the U.S. would not have to invade and fight through the cities there to subdue it.\n. \n \n\nThe standard answer (and arguably most true) is that using the Atomic Bomb stopped the Japanese from...
Never. The atomic bomb was invented in 1933 by Leo Szilard.
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...
The US Army Corps of Engineers. General Leslie R. Groves was put in charge of the project, which was given the overall cover title of the "Manhattan Engineer District" to confuse spies, and so is often called "The Manhattan Project". Little or none of the work actually took place in Manhattan....
Albert Einstein was responsible and regretted suggesting we drop the bomb on Japan.
Actually there is no secret to the atomic bomb. However Klaus Fuchs & Ted Hall provided the plans of Fat Man. This saved them considerable engineering effort.
Probably if every continent got bombed!! But i believe no such crime is going to happen!! Powerful nations are being administered by more cooler heads so to say now!! But why this question?? There are better topics than ending the world!!
No, Most atomic bombs have a blast distance of 40 miles. By. Husky Pratt
Japan was prepared to fight until the last man was killed if the US attempted an invasion. They actually assumed an invasion would happen, since the US had slowly and methodically been invading Japanese held islands from 1943 onward. They had no idea the A-bomb even existed yet. The Americans...
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
we could have kept the bomb a secret . using the bomb led to the arms race . and the bomb left behind massive loads of radiation . Wrong . the secret had already been handed to the USSR by spys . the seeds of the arms race already existed, it would have happened without nuclear weapons
At the end of World War II, few questioned Truman's decision to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Most Americans accepted the obvious reasoning: the atomic bombings brought the war to a more timely end. They did not have a problem with over one hundred thousand of the enemy being...
I believe it was right, yet unright, to use the atomic bomb in World War 2. On one hand, it quickly stopped the war, we would not have to involve ourselves in a bloody invasion of the home islands, and it made the U.S.A. look stronger. But on the other, there have been almost 500,000 deaths because...
it has none. atomic number is a property that only applies to pureelements.
No, or at least almost none because well, the radiation/shock wave/emp/extreme thermal heat would probably have anything around it screwed anyway.
\nThe Plutonium bomb dropped on Nagasaki was nicknamed 'Fat Man'..
Atomic bombs are crated for shipment. It makes them simpler to transport.. Or did you perhaps mean created ?.
There were no warnings. The Manhattan Project was a secret. This was the name of the research project that developed the atom bomb.
blast , pressure wave, strong winds, ground shock . thermal flash , electromagnetic radiation infrared . prompt radiation , electromagnetic radiation fromvisible light to gamma rays, neutrons . delayed radiation , fallout mostly from fissionproducts but also some due to neutron activation as well as...
They have been built in sizes from smaller than an 11 inch diameter sphere to as big as an 80 foot tall by 20 foot diameter cylinder. Almost any size is possible, depending mostly on purpose.
In a reactor it is controlled and stays at a constant rate. In a bomb it is uncontrolled and rises exponentially until the bomb explodes, terminating it.
uranium and plutonium
There was 2 planes the Enola Gay and the Bockscar.
