Are the atomic bomb and depleted uranium the same weapon?

No, the atomic bomb and depleted uranium are not the same thing. Nuclear weapons are made with enriched uranium or with plutonium as the fissionable material. Depleted uranium is uranium that is "left over" after natural uranium is put through a process called enrichment to inprove the concentration of the isotope U-235 over that in natural uranium. The enriched uranium with its higher percentage of U-235 is fissionable, and it can be used in nuclear reactors and in nuclear weapons. Depleted uranium is used to make armor-piercing projectiles, and can be put through the neutron flux in an operating reactor to be transformed (transmuted) into plutonium.
