The effect of a nuclear explosion, taking aside radiation, is similar to that caused by a conventional device, albeit on a much larger scale. The destructive power of a nuclear device is measured as follows:
188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206)- Tonnes: one 'Ton' is equivalent to the energy dissipated by the explosion of 1.000 kilograms of TNT, a widely used military and industrial explosive.
220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168)- Kilotonnes: equivalent to one thousand tonnes.
22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199)- Megatonnes: equivalent to 1.000 kilotonnes.
As everything occurs in a larger scale, some phenomena that are usually hard to detect during a conventional explosion, during a nuclear attack they become more significant. For example, there are actually two 'shock waves' and a secondary, particular effect to be considered:
188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206)- The true shock wave, transmitted through the air.
220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168)- A counter wave, inverse to the initial shock wave, cause by the suction of air that originates in ground-zero. The explosion increases the temperature of the air in the zone, this heated gas raises, causing a very low pressure bubble in the atmosphere, and this, in turn, sucks violently air back to the zone above the destroyed target.
22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199)- An electromagnetic pulse or EMP, that destroys all electronic equipment which is not adequately protected by means such as a Faraday cage.
