They release some of the energy bound in atomic nuclei.
This is a very simplistic answer: A Hydrogen Bomb is a type of nuclear bomb. It uses hydrogen fusion (combining atoms) to release the nuclear energy. The first "atomic" bombs used uranium or plutonium fission (splitting atoms) to release nuclear energy. So they are nuclear weapons also.
A nuclear bomb or atomic bomb
It gets its energy from the atomic nucleus.
An atomic bomb releases more energy than a conventional chemical bomb because the atomic bomb releases binding, or Nuclear Strong Force, energy while the conventional bomb releases chemical energy, and there is far more binding energy (hundreds and thousands of times) than there is chemical energy from the same mass of material.
This nuclear weapon is called an atomic bomb or a nuclear bomb
A large release of energy from atomic nuclei, either via fission or fusion.
An atomic bomb is a bomb that releases a tremendous amount of energy by initiating a nuclear fission chain reaction.
that's what makes it work: a very sudden release of nuclear energy. This takes only 1 to 2 microseconds in a typical atomic bomb, a bit longer in a hydrogen bomb as each stage has to detonate the next one.
Gunpowder, TNT, C4 plastic explosive, nitroglycerin, etc. all release chemical energy that has nothing to do with the nuclei of the atoms in the chemicals. Any 'bomb' that makes an explosion with nuclear energy is a 'nuclear' bomb. The "Hydrogen Bomb" is one of them. So far, devices have been built and tested that use the atomic nucleus to make explosions in two different general ways: -- "fission" . . . the nuclear energy is… Read More
An atomic bomb has more destructive potential, but a large, long-lived tornado would probably release more energy than a small nuclear weapon.
Yes, they both are a nuclear weapon in which enormous energy is released by nuclear fission.
atomic bomb caused harm while the nuclear energy can be both harmful(radiation) and harmless(for electricity).
Yes and no. A-bomb or Atomic Bomb is a generic term simply meaning a bomb getting its energy from the atom. This name has become commonly used to mean Fission bomb. Nuclear Bomb is a generic term simply meaning a bomb getting its energy from the nucleus of the atom, can be used interchangeably with Atomic bomb as a generic term. Fission Bomb is a term for a specific type of Atomic/Nuclear bomb getting its… Read More
Nuclear energy is, primarily, the controlled (or, in a bomb, the uncontrolled) release of binding energy (Strong Atomic Force) in the nucleus of an atom by the process of fission or fusion. All nuclear power plants and the Atomic bomb use fission. The Sun and the Hydrogen bomb use fusion1. Nuclear chemistry, on the other hand, is the interrelationship between electron fields of various atoms as they interact to form various compounds, releasing and/or absorbing… Read More
The energy of this bomb is produced by the nuclear fission of enriched uranium or plutonium.
It gets its energy from the atomic nucleus.
Both. An atomic bomb IS a nuclear bomb.
Yes. The atomic bomb is an example of uncontrolled nuclear fission. The hydrogen bomb is an example of uncontrolled fusion, initiated by uncontrolled fission.
The nuclear fuel either loaded in adedicatednuclear reactor or in an atomic bomb
nuclear energy. in stars every few microseconds there a nuclear fusion that is almost equivalent to the energy released by an atomic bomb.
A hydrogen bomb is a nuclear weapon that releases atomic energy by union of light(hydrogen) nuclear at high temperatures to form helium.
The term atom bomb (or atomic bomb) usually refers to a bomb that obtains its energy solely through the process of nuclear fission. However technically the term is considered interchangeable with nuclear bomb, and can refer to any bomb obtaining its energy through either nuclear fission, nuclear fusion, or any combination of the two processes.
i think they're the same. the atomic bomb is a type of nuclear bomb
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.
I am not sure what is meant by the phrase faster energy. As far as the difference. A nuclear bomb can refer to a fission device (also known as atomic bomb). Or it can be a thermonuclear device (combining both fission and fusion reactions), which yields a larger blast energy from the same amount of material. For some reason, links are not allowed to be added right now, so go to Wikipedia and type in… Read More
If you mean "atomic" as in the Atomic Bomb, then the word "nuclear" could be substituted = Nuclear Bomb.
Those are two different names for the same thing. There actually is not a difference in the atomic bomb and nuclear bomb. Saying 'Nuclear Bomb' is a modern way of saying 'Atomic Bomb'.
The original atomic bomb used a radioactive isotope of Uranium (U235) as its energy source, but other heavy elements, such as Plutonium, could also be used. Also, the Hydrogen bomb is often referred to as an "atom" bomb or "atomic" bomb, which it is, but it works by nuclear fusion, not nuclear fission.
Atomic bombs are a type of Nuclear bomb and there are 2 types of nuclear bombs. The second type of nuclear bomb is a hydrogen bomb.
The principle of the atomic bomb is the nuclear fission.
They both use the nuclei of atoms to release immense amounts of energy, and both are incredibly hazardous to those in their vicinity.

An atomic bomb is a nuclear bomb.It can kill lots and lots of people
hi if your cheating and in Mrs Welling's class then it is in the lesson but here you go atomic or nuclear
Nuclear energy is not PUT into a bomb, it is already present in the atoms of the fissile material which is part of the bomb.
No. A nuclear missile is a rocket of some kind with an atomic/nuclear bomb as its warhead.
That would depend on the yield of the bomb, the power rating of the reactor, and the lifetime of the reactor. Bombs release all their energy in microseconds, reactors take years or decades.
An atomic bomb is a complete deliverable bomb, including all nonnuclear components. The nuclear core is a rather small part, typically between 2 to 3 inches in diameter that contains the fissile fuel that when made supercritical by conventional explosives in the bomb fissions and provides the energy to drive the actual nuclear explosion.
When people talk about nuclear bombs, they are generally in two categories; atomic and thermonuclear. Atomic bombs are like the ones dropped on Japan in 1945.Thermonuclear bombs have never been used in warfare and involve using an atomic bomb to set off an explosion of a thermonuclear bomb, like a hydrogen bomb. IN ADDITION: The Soviet exploded the largest nuclear bomb to date back in 1961. It was a hydrogen bomb which released energy equivalent… Read More
18th May1998, but its not atomic bomb (its nuclear bomb)
Military use Nuclear Energy for the protection purposes and generating electricity for many military operations.Nuclear energy is used in Atomic Bomb which is becoming a necessity for every country.
the atomic bomb or nuclear bomb
What is the difference between the nuclear reactions in a nuclear reactor and those in an atomic bomb?
Nuclear reactions in a nuclear reactor are controlled reactions. The reactions in the atomic bomb are not controlled reactions
They can be the same or they can be different. Both are the same because they take their energy from the strong force that holds the atomic nucleus together. Whether they are fission or fusion bombs both contain a fission bomb.
Nuclear Bomb Hydrogen Bomb A-bomb H-bomb Atomic bomb Atomic warhead Nuke
What were two problems that scientist encountered during their first discussions about making the atomic bomb?
That was the line up or the nuclear material so the fission or the implosion could yield a colossal release of energy.
Atomic bombs are fission weapons. Hydrogen bombs use fission/ fusion. Both are Nuclear weapons.
A nuclear bomb has never been dropped. It was an atomic bomb that was dropped on the Japanese cities Hiroshima ans Nagasaki. An atomic bomb is a nuclear weapon. Nuclear bombs have much more impact than atomic bombs, and could potentially end the World if a nuclear war was started.
