THE ATOMIC BOMB
Transcript of THE ATOMIC BOMB
By Eli Rusk
Why I Chose This Project
I chose this project because a while ago, my brother was giving me a chemistry lesson, and explained how the Atomic Bomb works. This knowledge then sprouted me to a chain reaction of ideas, giving me the explosive intent to create a blinding I.P. project that has deadly after effects.
THE MANHATTAN PROJECT
In 1939, Albert Einstein contacted
the U.S. government of word that
the Nazis were trying to create a
weapon with uranium 235. After that,
the government started something
known as "The Manhattan Project".
They would create a weapon known
as the Atomic Bomb.
The Atomic Bomb was tested a few times, until
they finally dropped it on there target: Hiroshima.
Hiroshima was the target because it was a large
military city. After Japan refused to surrender a second time, A bomb was dropped on Nagasaki three days later.
HOW DOES IT WORK? INTRO
The Atomic Bomb takes quite a while to explain, so get ready for quite a while of boring science stuff. But if you understand it, all this will be quite interesting if you don't know it already. Get ready!
INITIATE BORING SCIENCE STUFF!!!!!
An Atom is a particle that is so small
you can't see it with the naked eye.
Everything around you, even YOU are
made up of Atoms. As seen in the
diagram, the center of the Atom is
called the Nucleus. The Nucleus is
made up of two types of
material: Protons, and
Neutrons. The thingies
floating around the Nucleus
are called Electrons.
Electrons give the atom a negative
charge, while the protons give it a
positive. If the number of electrons
and protons are unstable, it needs a
J. Robert Oppenheimer was the head scientist of the Manhattan Project. Robert was born on April 22, 1904 in New York City, and died February 18 1967, Princeton, New Jersey. As he most famously said,"I am become death, the destroyer of worlds." Oppenheimer wasn't the most social physicist on the team. Oppenheimer was an American theoretical physicist and professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley.
Albert Einstein is a physicist
that had many theories of
science, including the idea
of relativity. He also created the formula, "E=mc .
Einstein was the person who
informed president Roosevelt
that the germans were
trying to develop a weapon
of mas destruction.
Albert Einstein was born
on March 14, 1879 and died
April 18, 1955.
Lieutenant General Leslie Richard Groves, Jr. was a United States Army Corps of Engineers officer who oversaw the building of the Pentagon, and directed the Manhattan Project. Leslie graduated fourth in his class at the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1918. He also directed the collection of military intelligence on the German nuclear energy project and helped select the cities in Japan that were chosen as targets.
BORN AUGUST 17, 1896
DIED JULY 13, 1970
A bond is when two or more atoms come together and share
a few electrons.
If an atom doesn't
electrons, it is
It then finds yet
another atom with
more electrons. This can go on for
quite a while until the positive and
negative charge is neutral.
Otto Hahn was the main scientist who discovered Nuclear Fission. Many other scientists helped him in this notorious discovery(Fritz Strassmann, Lise Meitner, etc.), but only one man can win a Nobel Prize. Otto Hahn was born on March 8, 1879, and died July 28, 1968.

My brother was probably my most
helpful resource, because he inspired
me to research such an important and
horrible thing in history. Thank you for

Nuclear Fission is a process that occurs
when a neutron is shot into a Uranium
235 atom, and
it causes a chain
the neutron is
shot into a bond
of Uranium 235
Atoms, they split
into to. When
that happens, the
atom sends an
extra neutron after the lighter nuclei, and splits that one. Each
time this occurs, the split emits more
and more energy, creating a
