If you had a theoretically perfect container that would not expand one thousands of an inch when filled with almost infinite pressure, and the
container was just big enough to hold the bomb in question, then pressure and temp would go way past the pressure and temp at the center of our sun,
or even the biggest stars in our universe.
That is how the sun regulates it’s self. The energy produced pushes the material out and relives the pressure on the core. That reduced pressure
slows the fusion reaction. The gravity wants to clump everything together than speeds up the reaction. The two balance themselves out.
But, in a perfect theoretical space, no mater what the pressure, and the energy generated the material can’t expand. Thus, the energy level shoots
way past what would be in the center of a star. It shoots up to the energy and temp level that is more like the condition that would exist right after
the big bang.
The Tsar bomb produced 210,000Tj of energy. That is 210,000,000,000,000,000 joules of energy.
That is199,041,595,200,000 BTU.
That would heat one pound of water to ..
basically 50 trillion degrees.
Considering the metal with the highest specific heat comes in at less that 0.25 btu per pound per degree F.
And the largest bombs were on the order of 40,000 pounds in weight.
That yields a final exploded temp of way over…..
4,976,039,880 degrees F.
Or basically way over 5 billion degrees. Probably over 10 billion degrees F in actuality.
The temp in the center of the sun is estimated somewhere in the range of 27 to 50 million degrees F.
So the final temp of the nuke after just the primary material burnt off will be over 100 times the temp of the sun’s core. But of course, you will
have all the other materials that made up the components of the bomb starting to contribute to the fusion/fission reaction which will push the temp up
Pressure will be way past what you would ever see at the center of any sun. Well except a sun that is entering the first stages of a super nova.
