Textbook Problem

In considering potential fusion reactions, what is the advantage of the reaction 2 H + 3 H 4 He + n over the reaction 2 H + 2 H 3 He + n ?

To determine

The advantage of the reaction H2+H3H4e+nover the reaction H2+H2H3e+n

Explanation

Introduction:

Nuclear fusion is the reaction where combination of two nuclei occur. Sun is formed by the fusion reaction of hydrogen atom into heavy nuclei of helium. The conversion of lighter nuclei into heavy nuclei release energy which is in the form of heat and light.

Nucleus of atom is binding the atom and stored energy is in form of potential energy. Other forces also effect the nucleus such as gravitation and Coulomb force...
