A morbid question....
How many nuclear ICBMs would it take to "nuke" the entire world. (Assume you're using UGM-133A Trident II D-5 W88/Mk5 missiles and blasting every single square cm of the world )
Your 3 seems kinda low
Uh my solution to the cofveve assuming the same thing and water at room temp. Takes around 2.5E3 joules of energy for water to reach 100 degrees C and boil. One breathe is 500 ml, you can say cofveve around 10 times before breathing again so 50 ml. 50 ml weighs around 5E-5 kg. Specific heat of air is around 1 kj/kg (?) So 5E-2 joules in a cofveve. 2.5E3/5E-2 is 5E4. I'll round up because assuming normal breathing you probably would say cofveve less times so 5?
When doing Fermi questions here it'll be nice if you can explain the step by step process of how to obtain your answer so others can understand. Just saying a answer doesn't really do anything.
If you assumed 6E5 1 megaton wepons are used to destroy the world, assuming perfect energy conversation, what is the volume of a object that can be converted by fission into the amount of energy to destroy the world assuming a density of earth in cubic meters.
