What is heavy water and why did Hitler want some?
Heavy water is water with some gases extracted.if you put it in a barrel and put the barrel in water the barrel would sink.Theonly reason Hitler wanted heavy water was because heavy water is used in atomic bombs.the only place he could get the heavy water was Norway. fortunately the Brit's blew up the only cargo ship carrying the heavy water back to Germany...some heavy water is lost in a lake somewhere in norway...lost in time forever.

Asked in World War 2, Heavy Water
When the Germans were trying to get the heavy water were they trying to get it from an ocean or what?
Heavy water occurs naturally in all water in a proportion of about one part in twenty million. In order to get a certain amount of heavcy water you have to isolate the heavy molecules out of a large quantity of water. The Germans used fresh water because there would have been no point in having to desalinize before they could even begin isolating the heavy water from the regular water. Heavy water is heavy because one of the hydrogen atoms in the water molecule has a neutron in its nucleus along with the proton.
