Which of the following are produced after a nuclear fusion process?

  • I. One heavy nucleus
  • II. Neutrons
  • III. Protons
  • IV. Energy

A. I and II

B. II and III

C. I and IV

D. II and IV

QUICK ANSWER…

C

DETAILS…

According to most nuclear fusion equations, we see two lighter nuclei of atoms coming together to form a heavier nucleus and to release a vast amount of energy.

Although during the detailed fusion reaction, neutrons and protons maybe temporarily produced and recombined, what we are interested in here are the final products after the reaction, which often times is a heavier nucleus and large quantity of energy.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is incorrect. neutrons may be an intermediary product, but it does not feature in the final products shown by most nuclear fusion equations.
  2. Option B is incorrect. protons may be an intermediary product, but it does not feature in the final products shown by most nuclear fusion equations.
  3. C is correct.
  4. D is not the correct answer.

KEY-POINTS…

You may please note these/this:

  • Nuclear fusion equations mostly feature a combination of light nuclei into a heavier nucleus plus release of vast quantities of energies.
