Transcript of Radiation

From a life story of Francis Mitsuo Tomosawa
In some schools, the students were mobilized to make fire lanes they had to dismantle a row of houses, leave one intact, and then dismantle another, to keep any potential fires from spreading.
That's what was going on in Hiroshima when the bomb was dropped. These students were making fire lanes, and so were in the city, close to ground zero. And the boys had their shirts off. Almost all were instantly killed or disintegrated. Or they died after wards, just like one of my best friends. Lifestyle Hiroshima Many of the people who where in Chernobyl at the time of the meltdown, suffer from cancer, mutations, and other severe medical conditions.
A lot of people who drank the water, or ate the contaminated meat had children with mutations. Health Chernobyl After The health of Hiroshima was fairly good before the bomb hit them.
They had many doctors and nurses.
When they where told that a bomb would be dropped, they started to stock up on medical supplies.
When the bomb hit many of the doctors and nurses where killed. Leaving know one to help the survivors. Health Hiroshima Health was fairly good, some people suffered from diseases because of the toxins in the air that the nuclear plant gave off.
People lived off of locally grown food, and meat such as local livestock and corn.
Many of the people where healthy, because they ate the locally grown foods. Health Chernobyl What is it?
On August 6th 1945, America dropped a atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Causing many people to die from being burned, and destroying the town. Many people died from this, many others died later from radiation poisoning. Hiroshima Atomic Bomb By: Ashlyn Wells, Hunter Coyle,
Jacob Barron Nuclear & Atomic
Radiation The bombing of Hiroshima changed the views of the people and the military on Japan’s invincibility.
Also, the atomic bomb had effected the thinking of government leaders, and it convinced them of the necessity of peace and surrender.
In 1948, General Hideki Tojo was tried by the Allies and hanged after being convicted of being responsible for war crimes.
Trolley cars, trucks and transportation buildings suffered extensive damage. Railroad stations and electric signal systems got also completely destroyed by the blast and fires Estimates of casualties have ranged between 100,000 and 180,000 for Hiroshima. Economy Unfortunately, most doctors and nurses were among the casualties, giving rise to difficulties of having insufficient physicians.
Though most medical supplies had been dispersed, many got destroyed.
Flash burns came from the radiant heat which came in a direct line like light.
Other injuries included burns from blazing buildings and fragments of flying glass from broken panels.
Radiation effects appeared within two or three days, often showing physical weakness, nausea, or inflammation or skin, mouth and gums. Health The Chernobyl nuclear accident, and government policies adopted to cope with its consequences, imposed huge costs on the Soviet Union.
The costs of the Chernobyl nuclear accident can only be calculated with a high degree of estimation, given the non-market conditions. Economy Nearly no one lives there because of the contamination from radiation.
People who do live there thrive for survival because of the plants and meat there are contaminated.
Only 36 people live in Chernobyl Lifestyle Recalling some of economic reasons behind the original founding of the city.
Hiroshima’s location is on a important harbor and at the crossroads between the industrial centers Kyushu, the Island Sea bringing success in the emerging new economy. Economy Hiroshima was becoming a modern in ways other than those related to its official municipal designation.
As Japanese pursued new forms of economic and military strength during the Meiji period, Hiroshima grew in importance as a city of heavily industrial manufacturing.
In March 1943, they adopted the Urban Demolition Plan that targeted 133 locations in Hiroshima for destruction.
To protect against fires resulting from air raids, military facilities and military factories were forcibly evicted from their homes. Their homes and other buildings were demolished to create fire lanes. Lifestyle There was a global crisis going on with small farm towns in the 1980’s.
Many farms where suffering from plants not growing right, or not getting enough water to help the plants grow.
When the meltdown happen many people left, because of the radiation, and the grounds being non-farm able. Economy Population of 50,000 people.
Mainly populated by small town farmers.
Supported Russia with all the food they produced.
Had a lot of wildlife around the town such as wolfs and others. Lifestyle Before What is it?
On April 26, 1986 the 4th nuclear reactor in Ukraine had a power surge causing it to explode. Releasing nuclear radiation causing people to having to evacuate the town. But some people became sick from the radiation, causing health issue in the future. Chernobyl Nuclear Accident What significant impact did the effects of radiation have on local people? Factors such as their lifestyle, economy, health. Driving Question Chernobyl Reactor
This is the Chernobyl reactor that melted down in 1986 this is the image before it had melted down, this diagram shows how the system worked. This however does not show how it had its meltdown. Atomic Bomb This is the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, completely obliterating Hiroshima. Although the city is completely rebuilt almost the entire world remembers it. This diagram shows how the atomic bomb worked and was detonated jacob jacob ba Work Cited
