Megan Johnson Period 1
The hydrogen bomb (mankind's most destructive weapon) works on the principle of nuclear fusion, where isotopes of hydrogen (namely Deuterium and tritium) combine or fuse under extremely high temperatures to form helium. explosion underground-test-detonation--project-Cannikin H Bomb!!
Basic Facts for Hydrogen Melting point: °C Boiling point: °C # of Protons: 1 # of Neutrons: 0 # of Electrons: 1 State of Matter: Gas Classification: Non-metal
Henry Cavendish from the United Kingdom gets the credit for discovering Hydrogen in Hydrogen was prepared for many years before it was recognized as a distinct element. Discovered
Final Thought…. Did you know that the process used to may a Hydrogen Bomb is also the same process taking place inside our sun?!?! Heat and Light are released during this process.
