New video released[edit]

Here is some new video of the prep and dropping of Fat Man that may be useful as an EL. (actually, as a govt work, it may be suitable for inclusion into commons) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9v5sW6t0zI Gaijin42 (talk) 19:18, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Done. It would be suitable for Commons. Hawkeye7 (talk) 19:58, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Mass-energy equivalent[edit]

The mass energy equivalent for the detonation is listed as 1g. This is not possible if the other energy values listed are correct. One of the other energy values listed is 88TJ which equals 88,000,000,000,000J. However, when that number is plugged into the mass-energy equivalency formula it does not equal 1g.

88,000,000,000,000=kg*(299,792,458^2)

88,000,000,000,000=kg*(8.987551787E16)

9.791320494E-4=kg

In other words, if the listed value for joules is correct, the listed value for mass-energy equivalent should be 980mg (maintaining significant figures from 88TJ.)

I am aware that the difference is only 2%, however that 2% is a staggering 1,760,000,000,000J and should therefore be considered. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.39.130.134 (talk) 22:55, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
