sir, the energy released during fission is 200 MeV where as energy released in Fusion is 23.5 MeV then why we say that there is more energy release in fusion

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


You have to look at energy released per unit mass of reactant.

The values mentioned are enrgy released per fission/fusion.
In case of fission it is U-235. SO energy released per unit mass will be 200/235 while in case of fusion it will be 23.5/2(deuterium) or 3 (for tritium)

So energy relased per unit mass is more in fusion.
