On what city in Japan was the first atomic bomb dropped on august 6 1945?
Surrender Japan! Basically, Japan was the only country that did not surrender to the United States and it's allies. Germany had already given up their arms due to massive s…oldier casualties, and Japan was the final enemy left at large for America. After Americans had tested the Atomic Bomb in the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos, they decided one way to get the final defeat from Japan was to drop the atomic bomb on them. After the first bomb was dropped Japan did nothing, then the second bomb struck and that is when Japan admitted defeat. Overall, Japan held out the longest, and America wanted a surrender from them. Which they got in a very dramatic and outrageous way. It was also to save about a million lives of Allied military in an invasion of Japan. NOT TRUE! that a truck load of B.S thast what they WANT you to believe we KNEW japan would surrender (we sent them a video of the test and told them what it was disigned to do) we needed a place to test the plutonium and uranium fission bombs on a residential area. they thought japan would be he perfect place. it was an awful event indeed, but when would we get the 2nd chance to test the bomb. we couldn't have done it on Germany as there where many innocent Jews that could die in the process. we have OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS PROVING THIS. so it IS NOT wrong. don't believe me? use the freedom of information act and go to a government building in Washington D.C and find out yourself.
Answer . \nHiroshima, Japan.
The US dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima as a demonstration of the irresistible power of the forces Japan was facing, and to give the Japanese civilian government leverage …over the military to force a surrender (a way to save face). Due to vast cultural differences between Japan and the US, the idea of "surrender" was not commonly shared. To the Japanese, "Surrender" was to lose one's identity as a human and to fail utterly. To an American, it was for the government to capitulate and to dissolve their military. Japan was exhibiting behavior that to a Western mind was beyond comprehension (including mass suicide attacks as well as extreme treatment of prisoners and civilians), giving rise to the idea that the only way to deal with Japan was with "Total Surrender". This of course caused the Japanese military to react even more desperately resulting in even more extreme behavior. Additionally, the United States was running out of time and money and was facing 1 to 2 million casualties if the homelands were invaded. These figures were derived by looking at the number of casualties suffered by the US Military in the invasions of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Several theories have been forwarded that the US should have acted differently. One popular theory is that the US could have simply embargoed Japan and starved the Empire until it surrendered. This brings up the question of how many more Japanese would have died as a result of this strategy than died in the two attacks. Given that at the time the President and most of the Military assumed that they just had a much more powerful bomb, the decision was pretty straight forward. Unfortunately, there was much more collateral damage than anticipated.
Hiroshima, on August 6th, 1945. A second one was dropped shortly after on Nagasaki on August 9th, 1945. Between 300,000-400,000 civilians (and a few military personnel) wer…e killed in both bomb drops. Note: About 150,000 were killed instantaneously, while another 150,000 died of burns, radiation sickness, and cancer in subsequent days, months, and years.
The US DID they wanted to make sure Jpan would surrender for sure The United States aircraft did drop a bomb in Japan in 1945.
This element was the fissionable material in the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima japan on August 6 1945?
The weapon was developed by the Manhattan Project during World War II. It derived its explosive power from the nuclear fission of uranium 235.
On August 8, Field Order No.17 issued from the 20th Air Force Headquarters on Guam called for its use the following day on either Kokura, the primary target, or Nagasaki, the …secondary target. Three days after Hiroshima, the B-29 bomber, "Bockscar" piloted by Sweeney, reached the sky over Kokura on the morning of August 9 but abandoned the primary target because of smoke cover and changed course for Nagasaki. Nagasaki was an industrialized city with a natural harbor in Western Kuushu, Japan. At 11:02 a.m., this bomb, known as the "Fat Man" bomb, exploded over the north factory district at 1,800 feet above the city to achieve maximum blast effect. Buildings collapsed. Electrical systems were shorted. A wave of secondary fires resulted, adding to their holocaust. Flash burns from primary heat waves caused most of the casualties to inhabitants. Others were burned when their homes burst into flame. Flying debris caused many injuries. A fire storm of winds followed the blast at Hiroshima as air was drawn back to the center of the burning area. Trees were uprooted. The bomb took the lives of 42,000 persons and injured 40,000 more. It destroyed 39 percent of all the buildings standing in Nagasaki. According to U.S. estimates, 40,000 people were killed or never found as a result of the second bomb.
By executive order of President Harry S. Truman the U.S. dropped the nuclear weapon "Little Boy" on the city of Hiroshima on Monday, August 6, 1945, followed by the detonation… of "Fat Man" over Nagasaki on August 9. These are the only attacks with nuclear weapons in the history of warfare.
Most historians agree that using the atomic bombs on Japan at the time the US did so ultimately saved many lives, potentially millions. In hind-sight, although the result was… terrifying, it did lead to a much earlier end to the War in the Pacific than otherwise would likely have been possible. Ultimately, the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved lives; probably millions of them.
Because the US and Japan were at war, japan having attacked the US in 1941, and had refused to surrender.
