    1. Which countries were involved in the race to develop an atomic bomb? The Manhattan Project was a project that involved America trying to develop the atomic bomb. While America was responsible for dropping the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but there were other countries that were also competing to develop the atomic bomb.
    These countries were
    • Russia
    • Germany and
    • China.

    2. Where were the atomic bombs used in WW2 and why? The atomic bomb was first used in warfare at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. There were a few reasons why the bombing happened here’s a few:
    • The United States wanted to force Japan’s surrender as quick as possible to minimize American casualties.
    • The United States needed to use the atomic bomb before Soviet Union entered the war against Japan to establish US domination afterwards.
    • The United States wanted to use the world’s first atomic bomb for an actual attack and observe its effect.

    3. Why was the use of the atomic bomb a significant event in WW2? The atomic bomb was significant in ww2 because the bomb played a key role in ending World War Two.

      Good Charlotte,
      Your response to question 2 tells us why Japan bombed Pearl Harbour but not why the US decided to bomb Japan. have another think about this and why the dropping of the atomic bomb was a significant event.

        1. Germany , Japan and United States
        2. Hiroshima and Negasaki because the USA banned Japan the sale of oil to Japan and Japan was cut off from 90% of thier oil supply.The Japanese were tired of negotiations with the United States. They wanted to continue their expansion within Asia but the United States had placed an extremely restrictive embargo on Japan in the hopes of curbing Japan’s aggression. Negotiations to solve their differences hadn’t been going well.
        3. It was only use for a nuclear weapons in wartime and it was the frist atomic nuclear bomb to be use in wars
