Without going into rigorous scientific detail, an atomic bomb works by nuclear fission. That is, large atoms - namely uranium or plutonium - are split into smaller atoms in an uncontrolled chain reaction. One atom splits, neutrons from that split strike and split more atoms, which release more neutrons, and so forth, in what is called a chain reaction. This releases a tremendous amount of energy all at once. Thus a single bomb, weighing no more than a few hundred pounds, explodes with the force of tens of thousands of tons of TNT.
When we look at a hydrogen bomb, which is also a type of nuclear weapon (though strictly not an atomic bomb), we see that it works by nuclear fusion. That is small atoms - namely isotopes of hydrogen - are fused together to make atoms of helium. This releases even more energy. Thus a hydrogen bomb has a force of hundreds of thousands, or even millions of tons of TNT. Fusion requires fantastic temperatures and pressures to occur. The only way to create those conditions is to set off one or more atomic fission bombs. Essentially, a hydrogen bomb is a nuclear fusion device that requires an fission bomb as a detonator.
Both types of bombs produce several effects: a blast wave, thermal (heat) energy, prompt (i.e. immediate) radiation, and fallout (long-term radiation), as well as intense electromagnetic disruption. The exact amount of each depends on the design of the weapon, its size, and where it was detonated.

If you consider the US atomic bomb is a Christian bomb, the French atomic bomb is also Christian bomb and so on, then you can name the Pakistani atomic bomb an Islamic bomb.
Both. An atomic bomb IS a nuclear bomb.
how was the atomic bomb repaired
Atom bomb is a shorter version of Atomic bomb

The principle of the atomic bomb is the nuclear fission.
The atomic bomb is an artefact, and so an invention. Maybe you meant to ask who invented the atomic bomb ?
18th May1998, but its not atomic bomb (its nuclear bomb)

he did not build the atomic bomb
Germany never had an atomic bomb.
any atomic bomb is radioactive, by definition
the us created the atomic bomb
the atomic bomb was not discovered, it was invented then built.
It was both: an atomic bomb using uranium as its fuel.
i think they're the same. the atomic bomb is a type of nuclear bomb
In general, a fusion bomb (hydrogen bomb) is more powerful than a fission (atomic) bomb. Fusion bombs use an atomic bomb to begin the fusion reaction.
The atomic bomb at Trinity was an implosion design plutonium device or bomb.
The second atomic bomb, dropped on Nagasaki, was a Plutonium bomb.
the population of Nagasaki after the atomic bomb was 166,000.
Yes it was one of the targets for an atomic bomb.
The atomic bomb was created by the United States.
The Atomic Bomb was not "discovered". It was designed and created.
The Making of the Atomic Bomb was created in 1986.
