Chemistry of the Atom Bomb?

Checking the internet, it seems to have been Uranium-235 isotope. I thought it was a different Uranium. There are a lot of articles about the resulting chemical isotopes that were created by the blast.

How do you blow up uranium?

You can blow uranium up with any conventional explosive. It's quite simple. But you can't just "blow up uranium" to make a nuclear blast. If your question is related to using uranium to make a nuclear weapon, there is a different question for that. A link to it can be found below.

Radiation is one of the long-term effects of a nuclear detonation wich of the fallowing type of radiation is emitted only during detonation?

Mostly Uranium 235, Uranium 238, and Plutonium 239 Also fission fragments. If your talking about any kind of radiation then it would be thermal radiation from the heat blast. When you split the Uranium atom you get 2 Neutrons, 2 protons + 2 fission fragments. 1 of the 2 neutrons will be uranium 235 and the other plutonium 239. the radiation from a nuclear blast will at first be heat. This will be continious until the energy that created it is depleated. Note Uranium 238 is weaker than Uranium 235 and it absorbs neutrons. Uranium 235 has a far greater Neutron density (99.3%) Uranium 238 = (0.7%)

Is Uranium-238 enriched uranium?

Enriched uranium: uranium with more than 0.7 % uranium 235. Uranium 238 is not enriched uranium.
