Nuclear Reactions Quiz

PS2K: I can distinguish between nuclear fusion and nuclear fission in terms of how each transforms elements present before the reaction into the elements present after the reaction.

  1. Define fission.
     

       
  2. Define fusion.
     

       
  3. Indicate fission or fusion for each reaction:
    1. ___________     222Rn → 218Po + 4He
    2. ___________     241Am → 237Np + 4He
    3. ___________     2H + 3H → 4He + 10n
    4. ___________     12C + 1H → 13N + ν
    5. ___________     H2 + O → H2O
