. What is the nuclear fusion of small nuclei? How does the energy released by fusion compare in magnitude with that released by fission?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret nuclear fusion of small nuclei and compare energy released by fusion with fission reaction.

Concept Introduction:

The decaying of an atom takes place by three type of decay such as alpha decay, beta decay, gamma decay.

In alpha decay, an alpha particle with mass 4m and electron 2e removed from nuclide while in beta decay two type of decay are possible beta (+) and beta (-). In gamma decay, nuclide will remain same to the original one.

Explanation

Nuclear fusion is the process of combination of 2 nuclide to give nuclide with heavy mass. Thus, reaction requires an element with heavy mass as product must focuses on fusion reaction...
