How many people died during the nagaski bombing?
Roughly 100,000 in each of the two cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, on which nuclear weapons were used. This is about the same number as were killed in numerous other air raids… on Japan and Germany in which as many as a thousand planes would drop tens of thousands of conventional bombs.

There's no reason for WikiAnswers to spout blatant nonsense. * Answer \nI searched the web for a definitive figure for those killed at Hiroshima by the "Little Boy" uranium bomb on August 6, 1945. I found figures ranging from 65,000 to 200,000, with the larger figures generally attached to the most recent writings. Astonishingly, there just doesn't seem to be any scholarly study of this subject, but only proclamations by people with a stake in the matter.\n\n\nThe Manhattan Engineer District survey\n\n\nIn 1946, the Manhattan Engineer District published a study that concluded that 66,000 people were killed at Hiroshima out of a population of 255,000. Of that number, 45,000 died on the first day and 19,000 during the next four months. In addition, "several hundred" survivors were expected to die from radiation-induced cancers and lukemia over the next 30 years. (This report is also known as the Oughterson Commission study.) This is the low-ball estimate, evidently because it was based on a census of households in Hiroshima and therefore did not account for the deaths of soldiers and Korean forced laborers, who are generally numbered at 20,000--though I can't find any solid justification for that figure. If they all died, which is very unlikely, and if we add a thousand deaths instead of the several hundred estimated by Oughterson's group, then we seem to be talking 87,000 fatalities directly attributable to the explosion.\n\n\nThe American researchers did an extensive random sampling of the surviving population, asking how large their family was and how many had been killed. From the results it was calculated that 25.5% of the civilian population had been killed. The great unknown, of course, is how large the population was at the time of the explosion. Where the Manhattan Engineer District gave a figure of 255,000--a figure based on the June 1945 rice-ration records, which survived the blast--others have posited 300,000 or even 400,000 including military and "day workers" (the eumphemism of choice for the Korean slave laborers). These populations would not have been shown on the rice-rationing records.\n\n\n\nBut even if 400,000 people were present in Hiroshima on August 6, the death toll ought not to exceed 102,000, if the American methodology was sound.\n\n\n\nThe Hiroshima police study\n\n\n\nAlso in 1946, the Hiroshima police estimated the dead at 78,150 and the missing at 13,983, for a total of about 92,000 if all the missing are presumed dead (again, a very unlikely hypothesis). So this estimate is not radically different from the American estimate.\n\n\n\nPerhaps significantly, the police study gave a figure of 129,558 for total casualties, including those with minor as well as major injuries. (These figures are suspiciously precise, but never mind that.) Today's "consensus" figure--that is, the one you see most often where the writer is not trying to prove a point one way or another--seems to be 130,000 dead. Writing for Air & Space magazine in the 1990s, I discovered to my horror that at least one editor didn't know the difference between a casualty and a fatality. Is this simply another case of counting all the wounded as dead?\n\n\n\nThe Japanese Reconstruction Survey\n\n\n\n\nOne possible source of confusion is where to stop counting the deaths of survivors. In 1978, the Japanese Reconstruction Survey compiled the times of death for 16,007 people known to have been present in Hiroshima. This survey found that 73.4% had died by 1 November 1945, and that an additional 5.6% had died between then and the October 1950 census. Interestingly, the latter death rate is 1.1% a year--almost exactly the normal mortality rate for the Japanese population. From this I conclude that the methodology of the Manhattan Engineer District report was sound. Counting deaths as of the end of 1945 must have captured essentially all of them.\n\n\n\n\nRecent estimates\n\n\n\nThe Radiation Effects Research Foundation website gives a range of 90,000-140,000 1945 deaths at Hiroshima out of a population of 310,000.\n\n\nThe Hiroshima Peace Site website gives a figure of 140,000 deaths by December 1945, out of a population of 350,000.\n\n\nThe Guinness Book of Records gives a suspiciously precise figure of 155,200 killed by Little Boy, including deaths from radiation within one year.\n\n\nIn all three cases above, there is no information on where the figures come from.\n\n\n\nThe Committee for the Compilation of Materials on Damage Caused by the Atomic Bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki estimated in 1978 that 346,000-356,000 people were present in Hiroshima at the time of the bombings, with fatalities of "some 200,000". This seems to be a bit of a stretch, since the last census conducted by the Japanese government prior to the bombings, in February 1944, showed a population of 343,034, The Committee is thus claiming a net gain in population during the final year of the war, when widespread evacuations were going on during the fire bombings and other cities were rapidly losing people.\n\n\n\nIn 1998, a Japanese delegation in India presented this version: "At that time, Hiroshima's population was 400,000, of which 140,000 died by the end of 1945, 90 per cent of them within a week of the explosion." So far, so good--that tracks other recent Japanese estimates. But the statement continues: "People continue to die even today, from the after-effects of radiation.... As of , there were 202,118 registered deaths due to the Hiroshima bombing." So here we have 62,000 deaths added to the total, with the count continuing at least into 1998. Clearly we are in an entirely different field by now. A 21-year-old in 1945 would have been 74 in 1998, and therefore have already lived past his normal life expectancy!\n\n\n\nIt's true that lives were shortened by the blast--but then, they were shortened by the war itself, and especially by the malnutrition that was general in Japan in 1945. Even if that hypothetical 21-year-old, laid to rest in 1998, would have otherwise lived into his eighties or even nineties, can we fairly attribute his death to Little Boy? After all, nobody is counting the American prisoners of war who have died in the past ten years, and calling them fatalities of the Japanese PW system.\n\n\n\nIn refreshing contrast to the accelerating figures published above, the City of Hiroshima has a project called Actual Status Survey of Atomic Bomb Survivors. The survey from 1979 to 1999 accumulated the names of 88,800 individuals present in Hiroshima in August 1945 who died before the end of the year. Certainly some of these died from other causes; just as certainly, some died who will never be known.\n\n\n\nConclusion\n\n\n\nFrom all that I have read, the 1946 consensus figure of 90,000 dead seems about right to me. Deaths after December 1945 evidently were not very numerous, and they seem to have been adequately accounted for in the 1946 studies. Even the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (cited above) seems to confirm this. The foundation's website concludes that the number of excess deaths among 50,000 survivors who got a severe dose of radiation comes to only a few hundred, and certainly not as many as a thousand.\n\n\n\nThree things seem to be going on here. First, there is the confusion between fatalities and casualties--that may well beto be how the original jump from 90,000 to 130,000 took place. Secondly, there is the problem that once a figure has been widely circulated, it ceases to impress, and there is a very human tendency (especially among journalists) to hype it a bit: you want the reader to say wow! Thirdly, there is a strong constituency for anything that serves to demonize the United States in world affairs--a constitutency that exists not only in Japan, as the victim of the bomb; and in Europe, resenting America's dominance in world affairs; but also in American universities and journals of opinion.\n\n\n\nTake them all together, and they seem to have exaggerated the death toll at Hiroshima by more than 100 percent. 90,000-166,000 The blast instantly killed about 75,000 people, but as time passed radiation contamination brought the death toll up to somewhere around 200,000. There are a number of different estimates as concerns the death toll in Hiroshima. See the answers below: 66,000 people were killed at Hiroshima out of a population of 255,000 according to a study by the Manhattan Engineer District. That number is based on the survey of 1940. During the last 5 years between 1940 and 1945, Hiroshima had many worker flown in and the birth rate at that time tell us that the number has to be higher. 90,000 to 166,000 people were killed in the Hiroshima bombing from things like radiation new developed cancers that some people still carry around today. At least 70,000 people were killed immediately, and another 90,000 died later due to injuries and burns. In addition, there are about 200,000 people on record who died of cancer and other conditions that were likely caused by being exposed to radiation. According to the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the population in Japan in October 1940 was estimated to be 73,114,308; in November 1945 the population was estimated at 71,998,104. Japan was visibly a thriving country that was hit very hard by the bombing. 140,000 people in Hiroshima died and 80,000 people in Nagasaki. Over one hundred thousand died instantly and seventy thousand diedlater from burns and radiation sickness or cancer. See website: Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 90,000-166,000 66,000 That depends on what you mean. For example, 166,000 total died from the bomb dropped on Hiroshima during WWII. The bomb was nicknamed "Little Boy". at least 75 thousand rggffgbfbfsfdfwfewefwfeewr The immediate death toll was estimated at 50,000 to 80,000 (blast and firestorm). The deaths from all causes during the following months may have been between 100,000 and 160,000 according to various estimates. 90,000-166,000 According to the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the population in Japan in October 1940 was estimated to be 73,114,308; in November 1945 the population was estimated at 71,998,104. Japan was visibly a thriving country that was hit very hard by the bombing. 80,000 people died directly; another 10,000-50,000 died as a result of the aftereffects. your mom but about 130,000 people died On August 6, 1945, at 9:15 AM Tokyo time, a B-29 plane, the "Enola Gay" piloted by Paul W. Tibbets, dropped a uranium atomic bomb, code named "Little Boy" on Hiroshima, Japan's seventh largest city. In minutes, half of the city vanished. According to U.S. estimates, 60,000 to 70,000 people were killed or missing, 140,000 were injuried many more were made homeless as a result of the bomb. Deadly radiation reached over 100,000. In the blast, thousands died instantly. The city was unbelievably devastated. Of its 90,000 buildings, over 60,000 were demolished.

It is unknown how many people were killed in the Darwin bombings, but according to the original records, 243 civilians and military personnel were killed. This number was late…r revised to "about 250", and later again, revised upwards still. The real toll is believed to have been much higher, as these figures did not include the many Indigenous Australians who lived in the area. Also, not all of the crews of some of the merchant ships were fully known. There was one report in the 1990s which suggested the figure was 1,024, but there is no substance to this claim. It is interesting to note that, at the time, the government announced that 17 people had been killed, in an effort to preserve morale.
According to the Atomic Archives the total casualties for Hiroshima were 66,000 dead and 69,000 injured and for Nagasaki 39,000 and 29,000. . This number is an estimate beca…use it is hard to take into account how many died years later as a result of their injuries. It also does not take into account the deaths of those born after the bombing, deaths that may be attributed to the radiation exposure of the parents.
On August 6 and 9, 1945, the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed by the first atomic bombs used in warfare. The first atomic bomb ever to be used in a military ope…ration was dropped on the city of Hiroshima, Japan On August 6, 1945 at 8:16:02 a.m. Hiroshima time. The bomb, affectionately named "Little Boy," exploded 1,900 feet above the courtyard of Shima Hospital, with a force equivalent to 12,500 tons of TNT. By the end of 1945, 140,000 people had died as a direct result of the bombing. Within the following five years, another 60,000 would die of bomb-related causes. - The bomb killed men, women, and children indiscriminately. It killed both military personnel and civilians. Although the city produced military items and housed soldiers, it was not selected as a "purely military target" as President Truman had promised. There were six civilians in Hiroshima to every soldier. - The second bomb, called "Fat Man," exploded over Nagasaki, Japan, at 11:02 a.m. on August 9, 1945. It exploded at 1,650 feet with a force of 22,000 tons of TNT. 70,000 people lost their lives in Nagasaki by the end of 1945 due to the bombing. A total of 140,00 died within two weeks.
\nThe US government believed more lives would be lost in an invasion of japan than would bombing two cities. It was a cost/benefit analysis.

This bombs are really hand grenades in the form of pineapple grenades and actually death records from the grenades were not kept.
In World War 2
Two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan when they ignored the peace ultimaed from the Potsdam Convension. The bombs killed as many as 140,000 people in Hiroshima and 80,000 in… Nagasaki by the end of 1945,] with roughly half of those deaths occurring on the days of the bombings. Amongst these, 15-20% died from injuries or the combined effects of flash burns, trauma, and radiation burns. Most of the dead were civilians.
