It takes an extremely high temperature for nuclear to occur inside the sun?
Not nuclear, it takes an extremely hight temperature for Fusion to occur with in the sun or any other star. ADDED: Yes "nuclear". Fusion is one of the two type of nuclear reaction, the other being Fission. ...
At what temperature does nuclear fusion occur?
The basic answer is that nuclear fusion can only occur at VERY high temperatures like MILLIONS of degrees. You can relate it to the sun where the sun is around 10mil degrees and bonds hydrogen atoms to form helium. ...
