Transcript of Venn Diagram Fission and Fusion

Fusion Similarities Combine atoms to form larger atoms The sun’s energy is created by nuclear fusion found in nature Fusion reactors don’t have dangers Isotopes of hydrogen deuterium and tritium are used Splitting atoms to form smaller atoms Fission reactors' dangers: radioactivity, release in the nuclear waste Uranium 235 is used We only use Fission these days Energy is released during both Both can make different bombs In their process, they create lighter elements
See diagrams (Helium and Lighter Element) They release Neutrons Differences Fusion and Fission are somewhat different, fusion is combining atoms to form bigger atoms and fission is splitting atoms to form smaller atoms. While isotopes of hydrogen such as deuterium and tritium are used during fusion, uranium 235 is used during fission. Only fission is used these days but it has much more dangers than if fusion was used. The dangers are radioactivity and release in the nuclear waste. The sun’s energy is created by nuclear fusion found in nature and is very powerful. Fission Similarities During both fission and fusion, energy is released in the process. Both also create lighter elements (four helium for fission and 2 lighter elements for fusion), and release neutrons (fusion releases one neutron and fission releases two neutrons) during the procedure. Both can make bombs, in fact, there is a bomb called thermonuclear warhead that contains both (primary fission trigger and secondary fusion device). https://docs.google.com/a/g-cacegypt.org/document/d/1uZI8a4654zTaQy4UhmmGxxdHUCh7yeLwldldIabccQ8/edit
