Nuclear Fission and Fusion

Nuclear Fusion

1. Confined to lighter nuclei

2. It is not a chain reaction

3. It requires extremely high temperatures

4.Energy is released is much more than that of fission reaction.

5. It cannot be controlled
Example: Hydrogen bomb

Nuclear Fission

1. Confined to heavy nuclei

2. It is a chain reaction

3. It does not require high temperature

4. Large amount of energy is released

5.It can be controlled
    Example: Atomic Bomb
