The H-Bomb, or Hydrogen Bomb, has never been used in warfare- the bombs dropped on japan at the end of WW2 were ATOMIC bombs, which are not as destructive.

Was it a sunny or rainy day when the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima?

It had to be a sunny day because the bomb had to be dropped from a high altitude so as not to endanger the bomber, and the only way to hit the target during that era was by sighting it through an optical bomb sight. After Hiroshima, the next city to be bombed was Kokura, but it was saved by heavy cloud cover, and Nagasaki was bombed instead.

Why can not you split a hydrogen atom?

This is only true of the hydronium atom as it only has a single proton to it, and splitting an atom in the traditional sense would require more than a single nuclei. Deuterium can be split as it has one proton and one neutron. Tritium decomposes spontaneously. Actually, I believe that splitting a hydrogen atom results in a nuclear bomb, but i ma be wrong. Please correct if I am. I know that a nuclear bomb has something to do with splitting a particular atom, though. The atom bomb works by splitting either Uranium atoms or Plutonium atoms, both of which have plenty of protons and neutrons that can be split in a large number of ways. The Hydrogen bomb works by fusing hydrogen atom together make Helium. There is actually more energy to be had from the H bomb as there is from the A bomb. That is very true. Also, I have confirmation that the hydrogen atom can be split and that it causes a nuclear bomb.
