DIFFERENCES:

1. Nuclear fission and fusion both releases large amounts of energy.

2. Both produce energy from the same energy source: atom.

3. Nuclear fusion occurs in nature; the sun is the most basic example while fission, on the other hand, does not occur naturally.

4. Nuclear fusion is the combination of 2 or more atoms to create 1 large atom. Nuclear fission is the division of a larger atom into 2 or smaller atomic particles.

5. In nuclear fusion, two or more nuclei should be near each other in order to create energy for both to stick together. Nuclear fission, on the other hand, needs to have a critical mass and a very slow neutron for the splitting to occur

Dear Prapulpodishetti,
            The difference between nuclear fusion and fission is
  • In fusion atoms are combined to release large amount of energy.
  • In fission atoms are devie into two parts and release large amount of energy.
  • Example for fussion is sun.
  • Example for fission in nuclear fission.

the main differences between these two is that fission is the splitting of an atom into two or more smaller ones.But fusion is the fusing of two or more smaller atoms into a larger one.

Hello Prapul
             Nuclear fusion is an atomic reaction in which multiple atom s combine to create a single, more massive atom. The resulting atom has a slightly smaller mass than the sum of the masses of the original atoms.
Nuclear fission is the process in which a large nucleus splits into two smaller nuclei with the release of energy. In other words, fission the process in which a nucleus is divided into two or more fragments, and neutrons and energy are released.

The two types of nuclear reactions used to produce energy are fission and fusion. In a fission reaction, a heavy atomic nucleus is split into smaller nuclei, other particles and radiation.

In nuclear physics, nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei come very close and then collide at a very high speed and join to form a new nucleus. During this process, matter is not conserved because some of the matter of the fusing nuclei is converted to photons (energy).
In nuclear physics and nuclear chemistry, nuclear fission is either a nuclear reaction or a radioactive decay process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts (lighter nuclei).
