Textbook Problem

Since the uranium or plutonium nucleus fissions into several fission fragments whose mass distribution covers a wide tango of pieces, would you expect more residual radioactivity from fission than fusion? Explain.

To determine

Whether there will be more residual radioactivity from fission or fusion.

Explanation

Introduction:

Nuclear fission reaction takes place when heavy molecules break into small pieces. In this, neutron is released which make the reaction uncontrolled . Fission reaction have many by-products during the reaction.

Nuclear fusion reaction has a neutron as by-product which is capable to react the radioactive element further and then more by-products of the reaction forms. As the reaction occur in chain form so it may be possible in fusion that unlimited by-products are obtained...
