It is estimated that the total explosive yield of all the nuclear bombs in existence currently is about $4,000 \mathrm{MT}$ .(a) Convert this amount of energy to kilowatt-hours, noting that $1 \mathrm{kW} \cdot \mathrm{h}=3.60 \times 10^{6} \mathrm{J}$ .(b) What would the monetary value of this energy be if it could be converted to electricity costing 10 cents per kw-h?

a. $4.65 \times 10^{12} \mathrm{kW} \cdot \mathrm{h}$b. $\$ 4.65 \times 10^{11}$

problem with 54 in terms of 30 to the question is the total explosive Yoda. Oh, bombs in our world is 4000 megatons. And we know that one megatons because this amount or draws. So we asked have to convert this energy toe kilowatt hours on one kilowatt hour. Yukos, this amount owed to us. It's just ah, union to come. Wouldn't we use false oaths? And times 4.2 times tend to affect in this is a amount of explosive. Yeah, the intros Andi want either by three Pour the six times 10 to 6. This is ah, the energy in kilowatt tools kill wall hours a NATO eco's 4.65 times 10 to 12 kilowatt hours. Next Turkey said that for one killer what I was it costed the 10 cents. So this amount of energy cost us 4.6 35 times 10 to 12 times 10 cents, which is upon $1. So this seacoast 4.65 times 10 to $11
