A nuclear weapon is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission (fission bomb) or a combination of fission and fusion (thermonuclear weapon).
Both reactions release vast quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter.
Ever wonder how many people would die and how many square miles would be completely destroyed if a nuclear bomb went off in your city?
Here is a list of what would happen if a nuclear bomb went off in your city. Note* The orange part is the initial blast and the gray is the airblast radius. In here, you’re pretty much dead. Buildings collapse, everything is on fire, no bueno.
These diagrams are what would happen if a B-83 (largest bomb in current USA arsenal) was dropped on a major city.
