  • Heavy Atomic Bomb Radiation
    1,117 words
    ... the end of 1945, either due to the initial blast or from radiation-related diseases. Circulatory diseases accounted for nearly half of the deaths. Between 1950 and 1990, the studies say that 15,633 deaths had occurred from the other diseases. Also digestive diseases, including liver disease, and respiratory diseases each accounted for about 10% of the total. Studies show that between 140 and 280 deaths had happened form radiation exposure alone. Survivors showed a greater-than-usual incidenc...
  • Nuclear Radiation From An Atomic Bomb Explosion
    2,212 words
    Ever since the dawn of time man has found new ways of killing each other. The most destructive way of killing people known to man would have to be the atomic bomb. The reason why the atomic bomb is so destructive is that when it is detonated, it has more than one effect. The effects of the atomic bomb are so great that Nikita Khrushchev said that the survivors would envy the dead (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, 1982). These devastating physical effects come from the ...
  • Effects Of Low Doses Of Radiation
    654 words
    The Biological Effects of Radiation Whether the source of radiation is natural or man made, whether it is a small dose of radiation or a large dose, there will be some biological effects. Radiation causes ionization's of atoms, which will affect molecules, which may affect cells, which may affect tissues, and so on. Although most people tend to think of biological effects in terms of the effect of radiation on living cells, in actuality, ionizing radiation, by definition, interacts only with ato...

He was a professor of physics at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec from 1989 to 1907. He was also professor at the University of Manchester in England. After 1919 he was professor of experimental physics and director of the Cavendish Lab at the University of Cambridge moreover held a professorship, after 1920, at the Royal Institution of Great Brit...
  • Atom And Its Particles
    396 words
    It has been said that during the 20th century, man harnessed the "power of the atom". We made atomic bombs and generated electricity by nuclear power. We even split the atom into smaller pieces called subatomic particles. But what exactly is an atom? What is it made of? What does it look like? The pursuit of the structure of the atom has married many areas of chemistry and physics in perhaps one of the greatest contributions of modern science! The parts of the atom: . chemistry and electromagnet...
  • Exposure To The Atomic Bomb
    2,120 words
    The Atomic Bomb Kaboom! In an instant two kilometers of a thriving downtown city are leveled. At the hypocenter the pressure exceeds thirty-five tons per square meter and the air is swirling at four hundred forty meters per second. The above is an accurate description of the destruction that that took place inside the Japanese cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The twentieth century was a period in which great advances were made in terms of technology. Perhaps the greatest advancements of technol...
