Is nuclear fusion used for nuclear power?

No, not yet. Maybe in another 20 years when its perfected  (which they have been saying every 20 years since  they originally began work in the 1950s on lab prototypes of  (MORE)

Differentiate nuclear fission from nuclear fusion?

Nuclear fusion is the process of squeezing two lighter atoms together to make heavier atoms; nuclear fission is the process of splitting heavier atoms into lighter ones. In bo (MORE)

How are nuclear fusion and nuclear fission similar?

They are both nuclear reactions. That's just about it. Other than that they are completely different. Fission is the nuclear reaction when two atoms smash the living soul out (MORE)

How does nuclear fission differ from nuclear fusion?

Nuclear fission is the process of splitting a nucleus with a large mass into two nuclei with smaller masses. The energy released can then be used to produce electricity.   (MORE)

Define nuclear fusion and nuclear fission?

Nuclear fusion is the joining up of two smaller nuclei into one larger, in our sun it is the fusion of hydrogen which produces helium, and releases energy. Nuclear fission is (MORE)

Where does nuclear fission and nuclear fusion happen?

nuclear fission is a nuclear reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts (lighter nuclei), often producing free neutrons and photons (in the form of gam (MORE)

What is the answer to 20c plus 5 equals 5c plus 65?

20c + 5 = 5c + 65 Divide through by 5: 4c + 1 = c + 13 Subtract c from both sides: 3c + 1 = 13 Subtract 1 from both sides: 3c = 12 Divide both sides by 3: c = 4
