FC: The Atomic Bomb By: Paul Engle
1: The reason I chose this topic is because I wanted to know more about the Atomic Bomb and other things about it. I wanted to know more about the dropping of it on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.
2: I didn't know much about the Atomic Bomb. The only thing I knew about it was that it was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. I got information from many different sites on the internet.
3: My first question was, "How big was the blast of the bomb?" | I found out that whenever it hit the ground, shock waves trembled two miles away.
4: My second question was, "How many people were killed from the Atomic Bomb?" I searched it on the internet and it said over one-hundred thousand were killed from the Atomic Bomb.
5: My third question was, "How big was the Atomic Bomb?" There were two Atomic Bombs, so there were two answers. One of the bombs was called "Little Boy".
6: "Little Boy" was twenty-eight inches in diameter, one-hundred and twenty inches long, and weighed nine-thousand pounds. It approximately had fifteen-thousand tons of explosives.
7: The second bomb was called "Fat Man", and it was sixty inches in diameter, one-hundred and twenty-eight inches long, and it weighed ten-thousand pounds. It approximately had twenty-one thousand tons of explosives.
8: My conclusion is that the United States and their allies defeated Japan in World War II, they used two powerful bombs to make them surrender, and won the war. I learned alot from this project.
