What is fission in physics?

In physics, fission is the process in which a heavy, unstable element is split into two lighter elements by bombarding it with a small particle. Some of the energy that was binding the element's nucleus together is then released, along with a third, tiny particle that is released as well. The tiny particle then collides with another of the heavy elements, causing it to split as well, emitting another particle which collides with another heavy element, and so on. This is the chain reaction that allows for sustainable nuclear power generation, in which the reaction is controlled, or the detonation of nuclear weapons, in which the reaction is uncontrolled.

What machine makes most synthetic elements?

Synthetic elements are obtained: - in nuclear reactors - as a result (in debris) of nuclear weapons explosions - with the aid of particle accelerators

What is nuclear bomb explosion?

Sudden release (in a few microseconds) of excess nuclear binding energy. This can come from either very massive elements (fission) and/or very light elements (fusion).

How is nuclear binding energy released?

Through either fusion of light elements or fission of heavy ones

Scientists make elements heavier then uranium in machines called?

Which is the order of particle size from largest to smallest?

The term 'particle' broadly encompasses any relatively small piece of matter, but in particle and nuclear physics, quarks and electrons are smallest, followed by protons, then neutrons.

Can a hydrogen nuclear fission reaction restart the hydrogen fusion reaction?

No, hydrogen does not fission. Fission only occurs in heavy elements that are well past the peak in binding energy per nucleon (where binding energy per nucleon is decreasing), and fusion can only occur in light elements which are in the portion of the binding energy curve where binding energy per nucleon is increasing. When you fission a heavy element or fuse light elements, the product nuclei have higher binding energies per nucleon than the original element. This is where the energy release comes from.
