**liemsta2000**211550Time yourself on this quiz before you read below. It would be the time of your ability to read and do math as well. Faster readers might do better than others. Slow readers like myself would take more time to comprehend and understand -_- I hate english!!! That\'s why I love math. Now get ready to start reading below.

Let\'s drop the subject of space and talk about bombs because space is pretty boring since there\'s not really any prove to it. One thing that\'s pretty dangerous is antimatter bombs. Just one ounce of that is equivalent to 1,220,000 tons of TNT. An atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki of Japan is 20,000 tons of TNT. So only 1 ounce of anti matter is 61 times stronger than that of the bomb dropped on Nagasaki in 1945.

Is it possible that humans can create a supernova? Yes we can. We have the technology to and the resources to but it would wipe out our entired existence. It would take approximately 25,690,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons of antimatter. I think it would be possible to create this antimatter bomb enough to cause a supernova if money wasn\'t an issue and people just worked as slaves xD.

So there are about 435 nuclear power plants around the world. The average power plant creates about 2000 MWE of electricity so each powerplant would make 1 gram of anti matter in 25 hours. Lets say we created 19 more nuclear power plant and it comes out to be 454. A lb is 453.6 gram but let\'s just round it up to 454. that\'s a total of 25 hours to make just 1 lb of antimatter. So a ton is 2000 lbs so that means to make a ton you would have to take ??x2000=??,??? hours just for 1 ton xD. So even if we have all our nuclear power plants of today combine it would take us ?.? years to make just 1 ton. I\'m not gonna do the math for how many years it would take to create a supernova bomb using our present day technologies but as time progress our techologies further advances so in the future it would take us a much shorter time to do it.

Lets see if you can fill in the ?? with numbers hahaha. How much time would it take to create a supernova bomb in years and/or in hours with our present day technologies.edited on 11/8/2008 4:19:50 AM

**liemsta2000**36715735Well comeon it's just a simple math quiz to get your brain started. You know that the more you think the less you're gonna age and the longer you will live. I like math. It's fun. Way better than english. English is boring.

**liemsta2000****liemsta2000**I can do it but I won't tell you the answer until I see the first person to get it!!!36715771**liemsta2000**It must be really late and nobody wants to do it. O well I hope I get some respond by the morning.36715790**iWabbit**36715805**_EXCLUSiVE-BEYBEH**ahahha36715811**_EXCLUSiVE-BEYBEH****_EXCLUSiVE-BEYBEH****liemsta2000**36715830**_EXCLUSiVE-BEYBEH**wrote:

lol why are you spamming? Are you actually trying to figure this out while you're spamming cuz that's pretty talented how you can type and solve this problem at the same time! I wish I was multitask. Now have you figured it out yet?**liemsta2000**o well i might as well spam cuz i have nothing else to do but free kudos so i can make a bet with a ufc friend of mine who thinks randy couture will beat the gorilla brock lesnar. I'm not even a wwe fan but I know he's gonna win cuz he's the closest thing to a gorilla.36715835**liemsta2000****liemsta2000****liemsta2000****liemsta2000****liemsta2000**36716014**TSK**wrote:

2000lb X A (lbs of antimatter)

25x 2000 which will be 50000 hours**DamMan**36720564You did forget two considerations.**liemsta2000**wrote:So there are about 435 nuclear power plants around the world.

Storage; How much power do you need for running the superconducting magnets so that you don't slowly annihilate the antimatter?

Conversion efficency: What percentage of the energy gets converted to antimatter? Let's just say that the particle accelerators used for producing antimatter today have very very lousy conversion efficency (as in, on the order of 1*10^-10, approximately).

Anyways, working in metric because it's easier (the numbers will be a bit off because a metric ton isn't exactly equivalent to an imperal one), the total energy for 1 ton of antimatter is

1 ton (metric) * 1000 kg/ton * (3*10^8 m/s)^2 = 9 * 10^19 kg*(m/s)^2 = 9*10^19 joules.

With your figures of 454 power plants at 2000 MWH, we produce joules per hour. Simply dividing it gives:

90000000000000000000/(2*10^9 * 3.6*10^3)/464, or 27539.65 hours.

This means it would take slightly more than 3 years.

However, that is assuming a perfect conversion efficiency; This is unrealistic, as even in a perfectly efficient conversion process, the theoretical limit is 50% conversion efficiency, as an equal amount of matter must be produced. In practice, though, it is far more likely to be possible to raise to to 1*10^-4 with high-Z materials, (citation: Antimatter production, G.R. Schmidt, H.P.Gerrish and J.J. Martin, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center) meaning it would take 30,000 years to produce one ton of antimatter.[ Edited by DamMan on 11/8/2008 5:46:33 AM ]

Yeah you're right. It would take 50000 hours for 1 ton. But how many years do you need to make it equal to a supernova size blast? Now that's a harder one. You might need a TI calc to do that.
