Nuclear reaction taking place inside sun is called?

Nuclear fusion; hydrogen into helium.


What type of nuclear reaction takes place in stars?

Nuclear fusion is the type of nuclear reaction that occurs in stars. Older stars with a collapsing center can exceed a temperature of one hundred million Kelvin.


Why is it difficult to develop a fusion reactor for power generation?

Fusion reaction requires very high temperature to take place .(approx. the temperature at the surface of the sun).This is practically impossible.


What is the difference between a fission reactor and a fusion reactor?

In simplest terms, nuclear fission involves splitting atoms apart to make energy. Fusion involves smashing atoms together to make energy. Fusion reactors are currently entirely theoretical and do not exist. The main problem with fusion is figuring out how to get more energy out of the process than you put into making the fusion happen. Right now, the sun is the only place where fusion takes place on any meaningful scale.Another Answer:From a power production point of view, i.e. a controlledreaction, it is true that we have not been successful with fusion power. However, from a weapons point of view, i.e. an uncontrolled reaction, we have been successful. This is the basis of the hydrogen bomb. Interestingly, the hydrogen bomb requires so much energy to set it off that we use a fission bomb (the original atomic bomb) to initiate the fusion reaction.


What is fusion?

"Fusion" means mashing two or more things together in sucha way as to cause them to join up and form a single thing.Fusion is the joining of two items together. Fusion welding of steel is a common fabrication method. In atomic power generation, fusion is a method (yet to be perfected) of joining atoms together to make heavier ones, and with the release of energy.

Nuclear fission, not to be confused with fusion.


Is there a place other then stars that have nuclear reaction?

Yes, they have accomplished nuclear fusion in a lab in Princeton.

How do the products of a fusion reaction differ from the products of a fusion reaction?

Fusion is a process in which the nuclei of two atoms combine to form a larger nucleus, while fission during fusion a small fraction of the reactant mass is converted into energy. While not the only possible fusion reaction, the most commonly known is the fusion of hydrogen to create helium. The product is stable. In contrast, when fission of uranium or plutonium takes place, the resultant nuclei are neutron heavy and therefore will almost certainly be radioactive.
