The mass defect due to fission or fusion converts to energy according to the equation: E = m c 2

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 …controlled nuclear fusion reactors for power generation). (MORE)

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…th processes, some of the mass of the original atoms are converted into energy; fusion tends to convert more mass into energy than fission does, so fusion tends to create more energy. Heavier atoms needed for a fission chain reaction tend to be unstable and radioactive, and thus the fission process tends to produce more radioactivity. (MORE)

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 …of each other and split apart, releasing nuclear energy. The other, fusion, involves the same things as fission, expect that extreme heat and pressure is required for it to happen. Instead of splitting each other apart nuclear fusion fuses atoms together into another compound/element, while releasing about 10 times as much energy as nuclear fission. (MORE)

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. …Nuclear fusion is the process of merging nuclei with smaller masses into a nucleus with a larger mass. The energy released by this reaction may someday be used to produce electricity. In other words, Nuclear Fusion is the exact opposite of Nuclear fission. While Nuclear Fission is splitting a nucleus into two nuclei, nuclear fusion is merging two nuclei into a nucleus. (MORE)

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 …the splitting of the nucleus of uranium which releases energy, as in a nuclear reactor. (MORE)

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…ma rays), as well. Fission of heavy elements is an exothermic reaction which can release large amounts of energy both as electromagnetic radiation and as kinetic energy of the fragments (heating the bulk material where fission takes place). For fission to produce energy, the total binding energy of the resulting elements has to be higher than that of the starting element. Fission is a form of nuclear transmutation because the resulting fragments are not the same element as the original atom. Nuclear fission produces energy for nuclear power and to drive the explosion of nuclear weapons. Both uses are made possible because certain substances called nuclear fuels undergo fission when struck by free neutrons and in turn generate neutrons when they break apart. (MORE)

Nuclear fission is a process, in which a heavy nucleus is broken down into two or more medium heavy fragments. Nuclear fusion is a process, which involves fusion of two or mor…e lighter nuclei to give a heavier nuclei. (MORE)

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
