The physically smallest I've ever seen was either a 6 inch artillery shell or the warheads of the Peacemaker missile, both had yields in the 10KTon to 400KTon range.

The lowest yield I've ever seen was the 12 inch Davy Crockett warhead which could be selected for a minimum yield of 10Tons (yes only 20,000 pounds!). There have been bigger conventional explosions.

Nuclear weapons currently produced are between the sizes of a microwave oven and a pickup truck. The smallest have an explosive yield in the sub-kiloton range, and the largest are equal to between 5 and 20 megatons of TNT. For a nuclear bomb, most of the size and weight is shielding, to protect the handlers from the radiation from the bomb core.
