Best Answer

no, yield is rather low because tungsten is used for fusion tamper instead of Uranium-238, so the fusion neutrons can escape instead of being consumed fissioning Uranium-238.

Why neutron bomb is known as smart bomb?

It is not. A "smart" bomb is one with a guidance system that guides it directly to the target. A "Neutron" bomb is a specialized form of nuclear weapon that produces relatively little blast, but releases more immediate nuclear radiation than most other nuclear weapons


What is the surprising effect of the neutron bomb?

A neutron bomb, or enhanced radiation weapon (ERW), is a type of tactical nuclear weapon designed specifically to release a large portion of its energy as energetic neutron radiation rather than explosive energy. Neutron bomb would use nuclear fusion, but in a different way. The detonation of a neutron bomb would still produce an explosion, but one much smaller than a standard nuclear weapon's. The main effect of a neutron bomb would be the release of high-energy neutrons that would take lives far beyond the blast area. The result: fewer buildings, cars, tanks, roads, highways and other structures destroyed.


Which bomb is more dangerous a nuclear bomb or an atomic bomb?

A nuclear bomb and an atomic bomb are virtually synonymous. The two terms are both used to refer to a nuclear weapon. Even Wikipedia agrees. The use of either term as a search argument redirects the answer to the article Nuclear Weapon. A link is provided. from benjaminmarkiewicz that dont make any sense a nuclear bombs blow travels 100s of miles and is more powerful cause its the newly invented bomb and the atomic bombs blow travel is under a nuclear bombs travel rate


How does a neutron bomb explode?

A neutron bomb is a form of nuclear weapon. It explodes in several steps. In the first step, control circuits fire electronic blasting caps cause conventional explosives to detonate. They are shaped in such as way that the explosion crushes a ball of nuclear material (mainly plutonium) causing that to produce nuclear fission (an atomic explosion). THAT serves as the trigger to a nuclear fusion explosion- (similar to the hydrogen bomb). This releases heat, blast, and neutrons.


What is the biggest nuclear weapon?

The most powerful nuclear weapon detonated was the Tsar Bomb which was a 50 megaton thermo-nuclear bomb that was tested in October 30, 1961, in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago

What is a nuclear weapon in wich enormous energy is released by nuclear fission?

This nuclear weapon is called an atomic bomb or a nuclear bomb


Is an bomb or a nuclear weapon more powerful?

If by "bomb" you mean a conventional explosive weapon, then the nuclear weapon is more powerful.


How do you make a atomic bomb on Doodle God?

plutonium + weapon


What is a nuclear weapon in which enormous energy is released by nuclear fission?

A nuclear bomb or atomic bomb


Is a nuclear bomb a weapon?

yes


What was the most dangerous weapon in World War 2?

The most deadliest weapon in the world is a Nuclear bomb/Nuclear missle. If it in guns you mean well i say best guns are the MG42, AK47 and the Barrett M82 Sniper rifle. -------- I suppose that now the most dangerous weapon is the hydrogen bomb.

What is a neutron bomb capable of doing?

A neutron bomb is a nuclear weapon that is "enhanced" to increase neutron production. It will do considerable damage because it is "still" a nuclear weapon and will have a minimum yield. But the extra engineering will cause the bomb to produce many more neutrons when it goes off, and this has the one purpose of irradiating the heck out of people or anything else in the vicinity. Neutron flux is very dangerous particulate radiation. It is hard to stop, and things with a lot of hydrogen in them (like plastics) do a better job than just "dense stuff" does. In that light, the neutron bomb, classified as an enhanced radiation weapon, will defeat the crews of armored vehicles because the armor offers incomplete protection to the people inside it. That was originally why it was developed. The neutrons will do a better job of killing living things, and those extra neutrons will be absorbed by some of the materials that are bathed in the flux, and they'll become activated, or radioactive. Double trouble. In the neutron bomb, a fission trigger sets of a fusion weapon that has an enhancing geometry (neutron mirrors) and material (like tritium). The extra neutrons released will be directed "outward" toward the "targets" and not be used to propagate the chain reaction. A link can be found below.
