Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

as part of my third year degree in Maths I have to give a 10 minute oral presentation of the atom bomb . I'll start off by quickly giving a historical overview of the experiments that led up to the discovery of radioactivity and the model of the atom etc and then intend to focus on about 2 or 3 main areas.

I was thinking about talking about some equations that approximate blast radius and damage etc and also do some work on trajectories which would have been inportant for intercontinental missiles during the Cold War. The problem I have is that I really can't find anything about the A-Bomb from a mathematical view point.

Can someone please give me a point in the right direction with a few useful links and helpful advice. Also, is there any other topic that I could explore associated with the a-bomb from a strictly mathematical stand.

Cheers
