Question

 What is nuclear fusion? Explain with an example. Write the equation of the reaction involved. 

Solution

Nuclear fusion
Nuclear fusion is the process by which two nuclei of light elements combine to form a heavy nucleus.

Example:
When deuterium atoms are heated to an extremely high temperature under extremely high pressure, two deuterium nuclei combine to form a heavy nucleus of helium, and a neutron is emitted. A tremendous amount of energy is liberated in this fusion reaction.  

Reaction: 

`""_1^2H+""_1^2H->""_2^3H+""_0^1n+` 

Tremendous amount of energy 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
