A radiation-enhanced nuclear weapon (or neutron bomb) can have a smaller total yield and still produce more prompt radiation than a conventional nuclear bomb. This allows the use of neutron bombs to kill nearby advancing enemy forces with radiation without blowing up your own forces with the blast. For a 0.500 -kT radiation-enhanced weapon and a 1.00-kT conventional nuclear bomb: (a) Compare the blastyields. (b) Compare the prompt radiation yields.

a. $\begin{aligned} \frac{E_{1,00}}{E_{0.500}} &=\frac{2.1 \times 10^{12} \mathrm{J}}{8.4 \times 10^{11} \mathrm{J}} \\ &=2.5 \end{aligned}$b. $\begin{aligned} \frac{E_{1,00}}{E_{0.500}} &=\frac{1}{3} \end{aligned}$

probable 55 intact. 32. In this problem, we are going to compare the result our convention on Oakland bomb and a neutron bomb. Our mediation you have to bomb this figure from taxable comes from figure 30 true point of 34. So the full different parts of our energy is blast. So morning tea and delay the radiation and the problem with the radiation. And if they have different fractions in these two kind Obama's the frontal problem. Ask us to compare the results of last energy. So for one killer at home, conventional bomb Blaster takes a 50% and the 45 point upon the five killed home neutron bomb the blast it takes 40%. So the division between these two bombs is point of five. Our porno too. Because to corner five for prompt with the radiation for one killed home bomb, it takes point. It takes 5% on the four point of five killed. Home neutron bomb A takes 30%. So the D V A is one or three. You can see that the for drama the radiation You're beautiful. Bomb is three times bigger than that of conventional bomb and for Blaster energy is much more smaller. So commercial. So the neutron bomb, the radiation. Your hostel has more effect on his enemy by the less effect on his own people.
