What makes fusion preferable over fission? What makes fusion more complicated?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret preference of fusion reaction over fission and reason for its complexity.

Concept Introduction:

The decaying of an atom takes place by three type of decay such as alpha decay, beta decay, gama 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 fission reaction is the breaking of atom with heavy masses to nuclide with lower mass along with the emition of small particle may be alpha, beta or gamma particle.

Nuclear fusion is the process of combination of 2 nuclide to give nuclide with heavy mass...
