The Atomic Bomb
American scientists build massive bomb against Japan
Building an Atomic Bomb
It all started in 1938 when a German chemist figured out that when a single uranium atom split into two atoms heat was released. When many chains of uranium are split consecutively, massive amounts of heat is formed. Americans used this concept and worked hard for many years on developing the atomic bomb. It was finally ready to be launched on August 3, 1945.
Oppenheimer was the person to first discover the basics of an atomic bomb.
The massive destruction of the atomic bomb caused by heat and the release of nuclear energy in Japan.
The Initial Concept of the Atomic Bomb
Oppenheimer's concept of heat release when a single uranium atom is split into two.
Atomic bomb- A bomb that gets nuclear energy from the fission of atomic nuclei.
Nuclear weapon -A missile or bomb that uses nuclear energy to make a massive explosion.
