Atom Bomb Justified

  • Bomb Calorimetry

    Abstract: The purpose of this experiment was to determine the energy of combustion for benzoic acid pellet and Di-Butyl Phthalate (DBP) in excess oxygen under constant volume. To perform this experiment we set up the apparatus for a bomb calorimeter, which would help to find the change in internal heat of the combustion of DBP. We also find the molar enthalpy of combustion by using the resulting equation. The experimental molar heat of combustion was precisely close to the literature value,-8628

Other physicists noticed that the fission of one uranium atom gave off extra neutrons, which could in turn split other uranium atoms, starting a chain reaction. Therefore, in theory this energy could be harnessed to make a powerful bomb. Due to this, the development of the ultimate power took many scientists
