# A Nuclear Reaction is Represented by the Equation: ""_1^2h+_1^2h->_2^3he+Xc+E Name the Process Represented by this Equation and Describe What Happens During this Reaction. - CBSE Class 10 - Science

ConceptAlternative or Non-conventional Sources of Energy - Nuclear Energy

#### Question

A nuclear reaction is represented by the equation:

""_1^2H+_1^2H->_2^3He+xc+E

Name the process represented by this equation and describe what happens during this reaction.

#### Solution

The process represents nuclear fusion.
In this process, when two smaller nuclei of deuterium are heated to an extremely high temperature under extremely high pressure, a heavy nucleus of helium and a neutron are emitted. A tremendous amount of energy is also liberated.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
