Bombs and Explosive Materials

Parent Category: Military Equipment
Bombs are explosive weapons that are detonated by a timing mechanism or other means to release a destructive material. Explosive materials, or simply explosives, are substances containing huge amounts of stored energy that produce explosion.

A calorimeter is a device used to measure the heat levels produced by chemical reactions. Bomb calorimeters are heavy-duty devices to withstand greater levels of heat combustion and pressure. Bomb calorimeters are used in many industries such as the oil and gas industry or food industry.
\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.
it ate my grandfather!!
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.
you have to complete the hole game with all the gold medals by George Maisey
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!!
The dispenser and the payload
From 1943 onwards, Nazi Germany used the MCLOS (Manual Command To Line-Of-Sight) guided "Fritz X" anti-ship and "Wasserfall" antiaircraft guided missiles.
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...
Mainly because carbon atoms are used as combustible substance, and nitrogen similar to oxigen, is oxidant (promotes the reaction of burning). Both parts are necessary to produce a reaction in very a short time (explosion).
Codename was - The Manhattan Project.
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.
Like all ballistic missiles, the old Polaris missiles and the current Trident missiles use internal gyros for stability in flight.
Energy of nuclear explosions measured in megatons where 1 megaton is 1 million of tons of TNT. A 9.0 magnitude earthquake like the one that hit Japan on March 11, 2011 has the approximate energy release of 480 megatons. A 10.0 earthquake would be 15 gigatons or 15,000 megatons.
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.

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.
While some believe that the September 11 attacks were perpetrated by the United States government, concrete evidence to the contrary exists, such as the flight pattern made by the plane before the attack, flight speed, and thousands of public and private video sources. Reliable sources, including a...
That depends on how big your hand is!!. 3 oz of chicken or meat looks like a deck of cards, whereas 3 oz of fish looks like a checkbook (and I understand that 1 oz of cheese is about a 1 inch cube) so there you have it, approximations.. 2 oz of chicken would fill my palm, but I'm a 5'3 petite woman,...
They were developed jointly by the United States , Britain and Canada. If you think that an individual designed or created such a bomb then it ain't true.
twice. one when you are a kid one when you are a adult or teen but im pretty sure that im a teen.. from: Link
At this time (2012), none. Neither does Russia. Existing bombs are just refurbished.
90,000-166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000-80,000 in Nagasaki.
They both derive from the Latin "mittere" meaning "to send".
It made the US the first superpower. It affected the US postivetly since after that they won the war.
It brought the end to an cruel war that had the most casualties of any war you could mention.
There were Japanese, some koreans and some american pow.
Its sole purpose is to kill nothing else
Pretty much anywhere you wish. Typically, they'd be outdoors, in open air, for either screening or signaling.
faster than u will ever know
Its not exactly disarming, but it can be considered disabling. . In nuclear weapons its called "fratricide". One weapon detonating before another close by can disable 2nd because its neutron flux can start the chain reaction in the other before a critical assembly is achieved by the conventional...
The Stinger missile locks onto a heat source for it's targeting... whether this sensor is capable of locking onto human body heat, I cannot say. However, it would be a very poor choice for use against armoured vehicles, as the warhead is designed to detonate near the target and use fragmentation to...
Guns are good for close work, guided missiles are good for long range targets.
President Harry S. Truman. (General Groves and James Burns pushed for it o be dropped)
President Harry S. Truman ordered the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki
The Allies required unconditional surrender of the Japanese forces. The war in Europe had ended months before. When surrender did not come after the first bombing, a second bombing was carried out about 3 days later. About a week after the second bomb, Japan surrendered. See link for more details.
No. A demand for surrender had been made and the Japanese refused so the second bomb was delivered.
Bikini Atoll. The name was in the news so much that it was taken for a new type of two-piece ladies swimsuit from a daring French designer appearing at around the same time, equally hot.
The population of Nagasaki, Japan the day the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on it was approximately 240,000.
I would describe it more as blending a recipe in a kitchen rather than making something in a chemistry lab. It is basically mixing powders. At least that is the way they used to do it back in World War 2. Modern grenades are nothing like the World War 2 grenades.
At Tinian Island, in the Marianas. Tinian was the origin of both the nuclear raids.

The US devilered 15 millions gallons of water daily.
Well, many of the dying jumped in the water to try to cool their burns.
Shortly after President Roosevelt (FDR) passed away, Truman came into office and made this decision.
America dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki
To kill people and destroy equipment.
Individually the effect of atomic bombs on the environment isrelatively small and transient. It mostly has to do withradioactive fallout issues. Ultimately the radioactive isotopesdecay: maybe in days, maybe in thousands of years - but eventuallythings return to normal. However, a large nuclear war...
There are many atoms used in an atomic bomb for various purposes. . Iron and carbon, lus some others depending on preference, make up the steel casing; . silicon and oxygen atoms make up the computer hardware chips; . copper makes up the wiring in the bomb; . various type of atoms make up the other...
They ended the war in 1945 instead of 1946 or 1947 resulting in the saving of the lives of over a million troops on each side. Also they prevented Japan from being divided at the end of the war into a communist North Japan and democratic South Japan.
doesn't really answer your question during the closing stages of the war against japan, japan was extensively fire bombed by the Americans. all the major industrial cities were basically destroyed. hiroshima kokura and nagasaki all had something in common . they were coastal . they were...
Very much the same as before, except in Hiroshima & Nagasaki where the two bombs were dropped.
The president of the United States of America at the time of the Atomic bombs attacks on Hiroshima & Nagasaki was President Harry S. Truman
