Why was the u.s. quest for an atomic bomb  dubbed the "manhattan project" started?

The Manhattan Project refers to the joint US-UK-Canadian determination to develop the atomic bomb. It was dubbed because the US Army component of this effort was initially headquartered out of 270 Broadway in NYC. The Los Alamos National Laboratory was built in a secluded spot nestled in the Jemez Mountains to house Project Y, the team tasked with actually developing and building the bomb, headed by J. Robert Oppenheimer. It was started because Albert Einstein warned Roosevelt that Nazi scientists were already working on developing an atomic weapon. The research ultimately produced two atomic bombs, which were used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of the war in August of 1945. While there was a "race" going on between the Allies and Axis powers for the first nuclear weapon, the superior resources and better chemists (Oppenheimer and Einstein are some) allowed the Allies to secure the first atomic bomb and give us an advantage over The Soviet Union at the war's decision with regards to the testing of the atomic bomb.

What did the crisis over the Missouri Compromise expose? the nation’s weak foreign policy the growing sectionalism over the issue of slavery the dangers of excessive nationalism the trade imbalances that result from protective tariffs

The correct answer is the growing sectionalism over the issue of slavery.

The Missouri Compromise was a result of tensions between Northern and Southern politicians in Congress. As America was expanding and new territories, the question of whether or not slavery would exist in these new territories became a prominent question. For southerners, they saw slaves as property and thought that the institution of slavery should absolutely be allowed. Northerners, on the other hand, did not want slavery to spread. This was due to their fear of Southern politicians gaining too much power in Congress.

This is where the Missouri Compromise comes in. After tense negotiations, it was decided that Missouri would become a slave state, Maine would become a free state, and that slavery would only exist in new territories below the 36'30 parallel. This compromise would be only the beginning of problems over slavery in the US during the 1800's.

What was the impact of the racial structure of the spanish colonial period on post- colonial mexico?

Before Spanish colonization, Mexico has established its own class structure among the population. However, after colonization, the class structure changed drastically. The Spanish elites imposed a caste system with different levels of biological mixtures between different ethnic groups living in Mexico which decided one's status in society. Those who were biologically more Spanish enjoy a better standard of life than those from Indigenous or African lineage. The strict hierarchy caused discontent among the people which led to civil unrest and an inevitable revolution.
