ConceptNuclear Energy - Nuclear Fusion – Energy Generation in Stars

Question

Distinguish between nuclear fission and fusion. Show how in both these processes energy is released. Calculate the energy release in MeV in the deuterium-tritium fusion reaction :

""_1^2H+_1^3H->_2^4He+n

Using the data :

m(""_1^2H) = 2.014102 u

m(""_1^3H) = 3.016049 u

m(""_2^4He) = 4.002603 u

mn = 1.008665 u

1u = 931.5 MeV/c2
