Hydrogen bombs are more than 1000 times more powerful than the very common atomic bomb. The explosion is from nuclear fusion which is when hydrogen nuclei (plural of nucleus) are joined to form helium nuclei, releasing great destructive energy and radioactive fallout. When the nuclei combine there is a split second where there is nothing and then there is the explosion. An atomic bomb is the trigger or the smaller bomb of what sets off the hydrogen bomb. We have to be careful with the hydrogen bomb because, if used, it will cause a major catastrophe far greater than the damage done by the atomic bomb.
hydrogen bomb or H-bomb, weapon inferring an extensive bit of its vitality from the atomic combination of hydrogen isotopes. In a nuclear bomb, uranium or plutonium is part into lighter components that together weigh not exactly the first iotas, the rest of the mass showing up as vitality. Not at all like this splitting bomb, the hydrogen bomb capacities by the combination, or joining together, of lighter components into heavier components. The deciding item again weighs not as much as its parts, the distinction afresh showing up as vitality. Since to a great degree high temperatures are required with a specific end goal to start combination responses, the hydrogen bomb is otherwise called an atomic bomb.
Chemical Properties: Reaction with air: - When plutonium is exposed to air it begins to oxidise, it forms a yellowish-brown outer coat and begins to tarnish. Soluble in: - Hydrochloric acid Insoluble in: - Nitric acid - Concentrated hydrogen sulfide The Critical Mass: - Around 300 grams which is only about a third of that of Uranium 235 Allotopic Structures: - Plutonium exhibits six forms of crystalline structures. The only form that exists at room temperature is the alpha structure. It has the highest electrical resistivity of any metallic
Fission and Fusion are similar only really on the surface. That is, they both deal with atoms. That really is where the similarities end, however. Fission is concerned with the deconstruction of atoms, while Fusion involves the reconstruction of them. By using the neutrally-charged molecules called Neutrons, we blast apart an atom, splitting it into two halves and sending its own neutrons everywhere.
They hired over 130,000 people in total to begin their ultimate plan, which of course was to create the world’s first atomic bomb. Wonderful scientists came from all over the globe, including a the famous physicist known as James Chadwick of the United Kingdom, who was known for winning the Nobel prize in 1932 for discovering the neutron. To the workers on the project, it was less of their own research for the USA’s better knowledge, but more of research and experiments being conducted as to race against Germany. And in all fairness, that is exactly what it was. The fight for the bomb, you could say.
Hydrogen is the most simplest of gases, but is a tremendous source of power. When hydrogen is heated to 10 million degrees it begins to produce the energy that makes the star’s shine, which provides the universe with warmth and light. When creating a star, gravity pushes hydrogen atoms together, causing tempters to rise. By the time the hydrogen reaches 10 million degrees a process called nuclear fusion begins. When the hydrogen atoms fuse together, it makes a heavier new material called helium.
In nuclear fusion, energy is released when atoms are combined or fused together to form a larger atom. In nuclear fission, atoms are split into smaller atoms, releasing energy. Actually, nuclear power plants can only use nuclear fission to produce electricity. The nuclear energy is powerful because it helps in production of heat and electricity in larger quantities as well as it helps in producing nuclear weapons like atomic bombs, and also in industrial areas. When nuclear energy is used
Iran made steady developments in the nuclear industry and had plans to build it’s first power plant at Bushehr, in 1974, however due to the Iran-Iraq war started by the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, construction of the plant was halted. Russia agreed to finish the construction of the plant and in 2012 it started producing electricity commercially with a peak output of 915 MWe.  Since then a further 2 reactors are planned to be constructed at the site. Despite this positive progress Iran's nuclear progress has not been without controversy. In 2002 it was revealed that Iran had been conducting nuclear experiments in secret facilities where it was found to be enriching uranium and producing heavy water, both associated with the production of nuclear weapons.
About the author: My name is LaQuefa Shluckerbule, and I am a reporter for the New York times, I am 34 years old, I am from the United States. Three days ago on August 6th the most powerful weapon in history, an atomic bomb with explosive power of 20,000 tons of tnt was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan. After the United States bomb was dropped, the President Truman of the United States warned Japan to surrender or be wiped out threatening to drop more of the atomic bombs if Japan did not drop out of the war. The atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, the reason was the city of Hiroshima was bombed because it had an important japanese military base. The bomb had an explosive power of 20,000 tons of tnt.
Robert J. Donovan (1977), author of an extensive history of the Truman presidency, Conflict and Crisis. While other historians focus on the what happened after the bombing. The atomic bomb became the first of step, of many, in an arms race between Russia, The United States, and China. During the Cold War there were millions of people living in fear of the next atomic bomb to go off over an inhabited city. Other Historians believe it was a tactic to demonstrate the U.S. might to the rest of the world, specifically
