When 2 H atoms fuse with each other how does it form deutrium which consists of 1 neutron , 1 proton and 1 electron? Therefore how are neutrons formed in this case?

1H + 1H-------2H1 +e+1 +v
formation of positron and electron neutrino.
theproton-proton cycle step involves theweak interactionbecause it involves the transmutation of one of the protons to a neutron in order to form deuterium. This process requires energy and produces a positron and an electronneutrino.
