Atomic Bomb

A term sometimes applied to a nuclear weapon utilizing fission energy only. The atomic bomb is an explosive device that depends upon the release of energy in a nuclear reaction known as fission, which is the splitting of atomic nuclei, with a release of energy on the order of a million times greater than an equal weight of chemical high-explosive.
