Luckily, there was an M1A3 Abrams position on the wall. It had plenty of APCR, and only 4 HE shells. After while something amazingly pierced through the depleted Uranium Armour and threw up shrapnel all over the place and disabling the weapon system in the process.

I managed to find cover behind a piece of the new wall, there was so much incoming fire that I couldn’t stick my pinkie finger out. After what seemed like hours, in reality it was a couple of minutes, I heard a loud roar of an aircraft engine. It was an AC-130 gunship! The Gunship rained down fire from the heavens, picking up dust and flying tank turrets. I decided to retreat to the second wall while the raiders were still distracted.

    For hydrogen bomb, it is unquestionable that the “ingredients” are made solely from hydrogen. However, that is not the case for atomic bomb. There is several elements available that can be used to make an atomic bomb. First material available is Uranium-235 which has been used by the United States during the Hiroshima bombing. The power produced by one kilogram of this element is equivalent to 15,000 tons of TNT (“How Do Nuclear Weapons Work?”). The other material that is available to use is…

    comes from the waste is the most harmful to health, which is why observations about this area are of high importance. In this case, we decided to focus on the high-level waste since it has the most adverse impacts on humans and the environment. Radioactivity will decrease with the increase of time. The traditional method of storing waste is burying underground until it doesn’t pose a threat to human and environmental health. We decided to choose uranium as the representative to finish this risk…

    Research has shown that the burning of fossil fuels produce an extreme amount of carbon dioxide, which is a primary contributor to air pollution and ozone depletion. Additionally, the burning of coal is an inefficient method for producing energy. The data also shows a fraction of uranium is needed to generate nuclear energy and the waste manufactured is also minute when compared to coal. Based on the data provided, coal manufactured nearly 2600 times more waste than a nuclear based power plant.…

    understandings of the nature of atoms. In 1898 France, Paris, Pierre and his wife Marie Curie discovered a new substance within an ore of Uranium that they named radium that emitted large amounts of (as we now call) radioactivity. Ernest Rutherford and Frederick Soddy Identified that atoms can break down and turn into different elements. For example if a block of uranium were left alone for 4.5 billion years, around 45% of it would turn into lead. Hopes for scientists around the world were…

    ISOTOPE EXPERIMENT- BEANIUM Introduction This beanium experiment was performed to display a greater understanding of isotopes of an element. Atoms that belong to the same element with the same number of protons but differ in numbers of neutrons are called isotopes. Since the atomic mass of a element includes the sum of the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of the element, It can be said that isotopes would have a different mass. Heavier isotopes tend to react more slowly than…
