What type of reaction is represented by the following scheme?

What type of reaction is represented by the following scheme

A. Fusion reaction

B. Fission reaction

C. Chain reaction

D. Radioactive decay

QUICK ANSWER…

A

EXPLANATION…

Nuclear fusion reaction is a nuclear reaction involving the combination of different lighter nuclei to form one heavier nuclei with a release of energy.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is correct. there is a combination of two lighter nuclei to form a heavier nucleus.
  2. Option B is incorrect. fission involves the splitting of a heavier of nuclei into lighter ones with the release of energy.
  3. C is incorrect. chain reaction involves a series of reactions in which new products engage in further reactions.
  4. D is not the correct answer. A radioactive decay must produce any one of the following products: alpha particle, beta particle, or gamma ray.

HELPFUL TIPS…

You may please note these/this:

  • Every radioactive decay must involve the liberation of any one or two or all of the following: alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma rays.
  • Nuclear fusion must produce a new atom with heavier nuclei.
