  • Atomic Bombs Effect On People
    825 words
    The effects of the atomic bomb were terrible. Theres no doubt in my mind that the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were a costly mistake. Atomic bombs produce heat millions of degrees high, and visible ultraviolet and inferred rays. (Lapp 844) Everyone and everything exposed to their blast is affected. No one is left untouched, whether it be emotional or physical; in many cases both. However, many members of the science community argue that the atomic bomb was a great advance in te...

  • Use Of Atomic Bombs In Warfare
    822 words
    The history of the atomic bomb dates back to the early 1900's when Einstein's theory of relativity proved a basis for understanding nuclear energy and showed that the atom contained vast energy. This energy seemed beyond men's grasp until the late 1930's. In 1939 scientists succeeded in splitting the atoms of uranium by bombarding them with neutrons. They found that the split atoms released neutrons and energy. Physicists found that the fission of these atoms could produce a chain reaction. In t...

    THE ATOMIC BOMB The United States entered World War Two after the Japanese bombed Pear Harbor on December 7, 1941. After four years of war, and the death of hundreds of thousands of people across the world, an end of the war was necessary. In hopes of achieving this, US President Harry Truman ordered the bombing of Japan with a secret weapon, "the little boy". On August 6th, 1945, US pilot Colonel Paul W. Tibbets flying a B-29 named after his mother, Enola Gay, dropped the first atomic bomb on H...

    Atomic Bombing: America's Only Choice It was discovered at the University of Chicago that neutrons striking the element uranium caused the atoms to split apart. The discovery, based on Einstein's E = mc 2 theory that mass has the potential to unleash great amounts of raw energy, showed that among the pieces of a split atom were newly produced neutrons. These might encounter other uranium nuclei, cause them to split, and start a chain reaction. If the chain reaction were limited to a moderate pac...

    Dropping "The Bomb" Towards the end of WWII America was faced with a dilemma. The Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor using Kamikaze pilots and were showing no signs of regret for it or any signs of not continuing these kinds of attacks. Through these actions they were also showing the world that they had no fear or respect for the American people. With both the devastating effects of Pearl Harbor, the largest most deadliest attack ever on American soil, and the Japanese's blatant disrespect for th...

Three days pass and you are st...
  • Creation Of The Atomic Bomb
    411 words
    The Atomic Bomb It was the thoughts of Albert Einstein that led to the creation of the atomic bomb. Albert E. predicted that mass could be converted into energy; this was later confirmed in 1932 by two scientists named John D. Crock fort and Ernest R. Walton. The way the atomic bomb works is by fission. Fission is the process of splitting atoms to create energy. Fission was discovered in 1938. The material they split to create the energy is called uranium. Unfortunately, uranium was very hard to...
  • Deadly Force Of An Atomic Bomb
    1,126 words
    Through the centuries, man has tried many attempts in inventing a mass killing mechanism. Alas, in 1945, such a mechanism was created. The atomic bomb was created after many years of the study of atoms. Finally, a way to split the atoms was born. Germany was the first to try, using uranium-235 to make a bomb. They discovered nuclear fission in late 1938. Efforts failed, but were picked up by the United States. Albert Einstein, although credited as the father of the atomic bomb, only lent support...
