Revolves around the battle between good nuclear attractive forces and evil electrical repulsion forces.
Usually, nuclear forces overpower everything in the nuclei, but in Uranium, repulsive forces nearly rival the nuclear ones.
If Uranium’s nucleus is stretched, electrical forces may stretch it further.
If the nucleus stretches past a critical point, nuclear forces give way and the nucleus separates. This is nuclear fission.
Written as follows:
-The minimum amount of mass required to sustain a chain reaction is called the critical mass.
The Atomic Bomb
The Manhattan Engineer District
The Manhattan Project
A project designed to research and create a usable atomic bomb.
Now commonly called
1939- Albert Einstein along with several other physicists sent a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
It encouraged the research and development of an atomic bomb.
They feared the Germans had already embarked on such a course.
The result is what we now call the Manhattan Project.
The construction of a Uranium fission bomb is not a formidable task.
The difficulty is separating enough U-235 from the more abundant U-238.
Slightly lighter U-235 moves at a faster speed than U-238 at the same temperature.
As a gas, the faster isotope has a higher rate of diffusion through a thin membrane at the same temperature.
Results in slightly enriched U-235 gas on the other side of the membrane.
It took Manhattan Project scientists and engineers more than two years to extract enough U-235 from uranium ore to make the bomb that was detonated over Hiroshima in 1945.
Uranium isotope separation is still a difficult, expensive process today.

Tokamak Fusion Reactor
Frozen Deuterium Chamber
In inertial confinement fusion, deuterium and tritium
are liquefied under high pressure and confined in tiny
glass spheres. Multiple laser beams are directed at the
spheres. The energy deposited by the lasers results in
forces that make the pellets implode, squeezing their
contents. The tremendous compression of the hydrogen
that results raises the temperature to the levels needed
