Was Chernobyl fission or fusion? The Chernobyl accident occurred on April 26, 1986, when a nuclear fission reactor core in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Soviet Union overheated causing a steam explosion and fire. This incident and the following nuclear contamination are estimated to have killed between 4,000-90,000 people.
What are the 3 steps of nuclear fusion?
- Two protons within the Sun fuse.
- A third proton collides with the formed deuterium.
- Two helium-3 nuclei collide, creating a helium-4 nucleus plus two extra protons that escape as two hydrogen.
Is a fusion reactor possible? Normally, fusion is not possible because the strongly repulsive electrostatic forces between the positively charged nuclei prevent them from getting close enough together to collide and for fusion to occur.
How does fusion actually work? Simply put, nuclear fusion is the process by which two light atomic nuclei combine to form a single heavier one while releasing massive amounts of energy.
