A. nuclear fission

B. nuclear fusion

C. electron collision

D. radioactivity decay

QUICK ANSWER…

The sun manages to produce its vast quantity of energy through a process known as nuclear fusion.

A simplified explanation of what actually happens is that four protons (or hydrogen) engage in a nuclear fusion reaction to form a heavier product called alpha particle, realizing vast quantity of solar energy.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is incorrect. not nuclear fission.
  2. Option B is correct.
  3. C is incorrect. not electron collision.
  4. D is not the correct answer. no, not mere radioactive decay.
RELATED!  Which of the following are produced after a nuclear fusion process?

KEY-POINTS…

You may please note these/this:

  • The quantity of energy produced by nuclear fusion is usually very much larger than that produced by nuclear fission.
  • The fusion of hydrogen radioisotopes, with the release of a vast quantity of energy is a brief summery of how the sun produces its energy.
