What elements drive a nuclear fusion reaction?

To determine

The elements that drive a nuclear fusion reaction.

Answer

A nuclear fusion reaction is driven by the fusion of two hydrogen atoms to form a helium atom.

Explanation

Nuclear fusion refers to a reaction where one or more different atomic nuclei and subatomic particles are formed by the combination of two or more atomic nuclei.

Usually, hydrogen atoms will be taking part in the nuclear fusion reaction. This fusion of hydrogen atoms would give rise to a helium atom. Such a reaction is similar to that of a hydrogen bomb explosion and releases a tremendous amount of energy.
