The aftermath

The aftermath


The atomic bomb

The atomic bomb

  • The atomic bomb changed the modern world.

  • The Americans dropped two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

  • The two bombs both atomic, however they did use different materials.

  • Little boy used uranium.

  • Fat man uses plutonium.


Little boy

Little boy

  • Little boy was named after president Roosevelt.

  • At the moment of impact a super critical mass was formed triggering a nuclear chain reaction.

  • It weighed in at 3.9 tonnes


Fat man

Fat Man

  • Fat man was a little bigger than little boy.

  • It weighed in at 4.5 tonnes.

  • 64 explosive charges went off around the plutonium inner shell which lead to the nuclear reaction.


Major energy forms

Major energy forms

  • There were three major energy forms involved in the explosion.

  • There were three

    • Fireball

    • Shockwave

    • Radioactive

  • There is one vastly different element in these three parts to the explosion.

  • This is the radioactive element. As it is the most deadly over a prolonged period of time.


Radioactivity

Radioactivity

  • Hiroshima and Nagasaki had 200 different types of radioactive isotopes.

  • Black rain was produced 30 to 40 mins after the bombs were dropped.

  • This rain was sticky, dark and dangerously radioactive.

  • Living cells were attacked immediately after the explosion by induced radiation.


Social damage

Social damage

  • Many of the citizens who actually lived in both cities, particularly woman and children.

  • The initial death count that was done of bodies was between 42,000-93,000 in Hiroshima.

  • In Nagasaki a similar count of about 60,000-70,000

  • Many people who were close to ground zero died within the first day due to the high radiation levels.


The facts

The Facts

  • There was high counts of mortality immediately after the bomb.

  • 90 percent of people within 500m of ground zero died.

  • 1.5km from ground zero 1/3 of people died and 2/3 of people were causalities.

  • 2km away from ground zero 10 percent of people died and 90 perent were casualties.

  • 4km away from ground zero 10 percentof people were casualties.


Stages

Stages

  • Acute stage- primary and secondary

    • Flash burns, scorch, contact and flame burns

  • Atomic bomb trauma

    • Blast injury, debris, bury under rubble, blast compression.

  • Radiation poising.

  • Radiation blood injury

  • Secondary radiation illness

  • Unhealed scars

  • Atomic bomb cataracts

  • Leukaemia

  • Cancers

  • Chromosomes changes

  • Genetic surveys


After the bomb

After the bomb

  • The population was decimated after the atomic bomb.

  • For several years there was a steady growth due to the evacuated families returning home.

  • When people returned there was social chaos.

    • Shortage of food

    • Not adequate shelter

  • In 1946 there was extreme shortages of food.

  • This lead to the government evacuating 50,000 people to surrounding villages.

  • Villages had access to crops and more shelter.
