|MadSci Network: Physics|
There are numerous resources on the internet, just two of those being the following: Trinity Atomic Web Site http://www.cddc.vt.edu/host/atomic/nukeffct/airburst.html Effects of nuclear explosions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effects_of_nuclear_explosions A better technical reference, if you can still find a copy, is: Effects of Nuclear Weapons, Glasstone and Dolan, US GPO, Washington, DC, 1977 Double check your terminology. It is more common to compute the height of burst as a function of yield, and is simply algebra to determine the yield, given the height of burst. The cloud height is not the same as the height of burst. Good luck with your paper. sid
