Now a power plant produces 15 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per day, enough to power a city like Salem. So this leaves me with three questions, let’s see if you guys can help me out with them.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What would the amount of energy be when converted to Joules?

How much does the above energy weigh?

The energy given off by nuclear weapons is measured in kilotons, where 1 kiloton equals 4 x 1012 Joules. How much mass is converted to energy in a 900 kiloton bomb?

Knowing that a lot of nuclear weapons exist, I want to see what the practical implications are for safety.

Thanks in advance.
