like atoms like hydrogen comine to produce reation
Fusion
Critical mass required to sustain a nuclear reaction
Fission
atoms like helium huge amount of energy released; occurs in sun
Fusion
much more than critical mass, reaction is too fast to control; produces radioaction
Fission
generally no radioactive product; requires extreme energy to initiate (ex. high temp) atomic reactions are used to initiate the process
Fusion
