## How many kilotons are in a megaton?

How many kiloton in 1 megaton? The answer is 1000. We assume you are converting between kiloton [explosive] and megaton [explosive].

## How many joules are in TNT?

The tonne of TNT is a unit of energy defined by that convention to be 4.184 gigajoules, which is the approximate energy released in the detonation of a metric ton (1,000 kilograms) of TNT. In other words, for each gram of TNT exploded, 4.184 kilojoules (or 4184 joules) of energy is released.

## What is the most powerful bomb in the world today?

The Tsar Bomba (Russian: Царь-бо́мба), (code name: Ivan or Vanya), also known by the alphanumerical designation AN602, was a hydrogen aerial bomb, and the most powerful nuclear weapon ever created and tested.

Tsar Bomba
Detonation mechanism barometric sensor
Blast yield 50–58 megatons of TNT (210–240 PJ)

## What is the largest nuclear bomb today?

With its retirement, the largest bomb currently in service in the U.S. nuclear arsenal is the B83, with a maximum yield of 1.2 megatons. The B53 was replaced in the bunker-busting role by the B61 Mod 11.

## How much damage can 1 kg of TNT do?

Under controlled conditions one kilogram of TNT can destroy (or even obliterate) a small vehicle. The approximate radiant heat energy released during 3-phase, 600 V, 100 kA arcing fault in a 0.5 m × 0.5 m × 0.5 m (20 in × 20 in × 20 in) compartment within a 1-second period.

## How many Joules is 1 kg of TNT?

TNT has an energy density of 4.6 million J/kg. This means that setting off one kilo of TNT releases 4.6 million Joules of energy, which is enough to raise the temperature of a liter of water by about 1,100 degrees Celsius — or equivalently, to shoot that same liter of water about 470 kilometers straight into the air.

## How much force is in a Joule?

1 joule of work = 1 N of force x 1 m of distance

In the English system of units, where force is measured in pounds, work is measured in a unit called the foot-pound (usually abbreviated ft-lb).

## How much is kiloton in KG?

Kiloton (metric) to Kilogram Conversion Table

Kiloton (metric) [kt] Kilogram [kg]
1 kt 1000000 kg
2 kt 2000000 kg
3 kt 3000000 kg
5 kt 5000000 kg

## What is the strongest bomb the US has?

The B83 is a variable-yield thermonuclear gravity bomb developed by the United States in the late 1970s and entered service in 1983. With a maximum yield of 1.2 megatons (5.0 PJ), it is the most powerful nuclear weapon in the United States nuclear arsenal. It was designed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

## Who has the most powerful nuclear bomb in the world?

That name was no exaggeration. Tsar Bomba’s yield is estimated to have been roughly 57 megatons, about 3,800 times the power of the 15 kiloton atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945.

## Can nuclear missiles be stopped?

There are a limited number of systems worldwide that can intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles: … The system uses Gorgon and Gazelle missiles with nuclear warheads to intercept incoming ICBMs. The Israeli Arrow 3 system entered operational service in 2017.

## What is the most powerful nuke the US has?

The B83 is a variable-yield thermonuclear gravity bomb developed by the United States in the late 1970s and entered service in 1983. With a maximum yield of 1.2 megatons (5.0 PJ), it is the most powerful nuclear weapon in the United States nuclear arsenal. It was designed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

## What is the most common nuclear bomb?

The Hiroshima bomb, « Little Boy« , is estimated to have been between 12 and 18 kilotonnes of TNT (50 and 75 TJ) (a 20% margin of error), while the Nagasaki bomb, « Fat Man », is estimated to be between 18 and 23 kilotonnes of TNT (75 and 96 TJ) (a 10% margin of error).

## How many joules is 1 kg of TNT?

TNT has an energy density of 4.6 million J/kg. This means that setting off one kilo of TNT releases 4.6 million Joules of energy, which is enough to raise the temperature of a liter of water by about 1,100 degrees Celsius — or equivalently, to shoot that same liter of water about 470 kilometers straight into the air.

## How much TNT is needed to destroy the earth?

The gravitational binding energy of Earth is about 2.2*1032 J, corresponding to 5*1022 tons of TNT. The largest weapon tested so far (Tsar bomba) had 50 megatons, we would need 1015 or 1 quadrillion of them.

## How much TNT is in a grenade?

The original Mk 2 grenade had a 3⁄8-inch (9.5 mm) threaded plug in its base, which covered the opening used to place the explosive filling, either 1.85 oz (52 g) of TNT, 2.33 oz (66 g) of Trojan explosive (a mixture of 40% nitrostarch, ammonium nitrate, and sodium nitrate), 1.85 oz (52 g) of a 50/50 amatol/nitrostarch …

## Is C4 more powerful than dynamite?

C4 is more powerful than TNT and is quite stable. Supposedly, a bullet can be shot into a stick of C4 without causing it to detonate. To explode a stick of C4 requires a detonator.

## Is 1000 joules a lot?

A unit with up to 1000 joules of surge protection is adequate for these small electronics. … A surge protector with 1000 to 2000 joules will provide sufficient protection for power tools and office equipment such as printers, copiers and routers.

## Which is another form of 1 Joule?
