Where were atom bombs invented?
London, by Leo Szilard in 1933
It took 12 more years to discover suitable materials and build
the industrial infrastructure to prepare those materials, before
they could be built.
London by Leo Szilard in 1933. However it took 12 years and thousands of workers to make the invention into a workable weapon in 1945.
A-Bombs were developed within the Manhattan Project which was part of the Los Alamos National Laboratory located in Los Alamos , New Mexico .
Nuclear bombs before the 60s were referred to as atom bombs, because the term Nuclear hadn't been discover yet. Nuclear bombs today, are generally Hydrogen bombs, or fusion bombs. They are significantly more powerful, able to places about the size of Rhode Island. Atom bombs,which were mostly uranium and plutonium, lack the destructive power of Nuclear or Fusion bombs.
Technically yes, as both obtain their energy from the binding energy of the atomic nucleus. There are two different types of mechanism of these bombs: fission bombs, these bombs obtain their energy by splitting very massive atoms up into lighter atoms. These are commonly called atom bombs. fusion bombs, these bombs obtain their energy by joining very light atoms together into heavier atoms. These are commonly called hydrogen bombs. But either can equally validly be…
Countries tend to make atom bombs to make a show of strength, so that other countries will think twice before attacking the country with the Atom bomb. This behavior tends to have the opposite effect, making other country build atom bombs so that the appearance of strength is also shown in their country. This is often how war begins.
I saw this question before and I hope you mean atom bombs not just atoms. Atoms are in everything in the entire world. Atom Bombs are controversial. Someone from my generation would say there should be no atom bombs, particularly the powerful atom bombs in existence now. Others way we must have them for defense. The problem is there is a cat and mouse game that goes on. One country says I have these bombs…
Atomic bombs, as they were called in the 40s, are nuclear weapons which use the properties of radioactive material to create an extremely powerful explosion. The explosion involves a huge release of energy and very damaging radiation. Look up "atom bombs" and you are likely to find a range of explanations.
Nuclear bombs release energy from the nucleus of the atom, which is held together by the Strong Force. Conventional bombs release energy from the electron cloud of the atom, which is held to the nucleus by the Electromagnetic Force. The Strong Force is thousands of times stronger than the Electromagnetic Force and thus releases thousands of times as much energy.
