Textbook Problem

Energy input is required to fuse medium-mass nuclei, such as iron or cobalt, into more massive nuclei. Explain why.

To determine

The reason behind using the energy input to fuse medium-mass nuclei into more massive nuclei.

Explanation

Introduction:

Nuclear fusion is the reaction where combination of two nuclei occurs. An example of the fusion reaction is sun in which the small nuclei of two similar atoms combine to form other nuclei.

Fusion of medium mass nuclei is a difficult task, as nuclei of an atom is having high binding energy, but the Coulombs repu...
