Electronul are o sarcină electrică negativă. Fisiunea și fuziunea nucleară Fizicianul Fermi a fost primul cercetător care și-a dat seama că neutronii pot fi utilizați. Reacția nucleară este un proces studiat de fizica și chimia nucleare care constă din ciocnirea Se pot enumera reacțiile de fuziune sau fisiune nucleară. Procesul triplu-alfa este un set de reacții de fuziune nucleară prin care trei nuclee de heliu-4 (particule alfa) sunt transformați în carbon. Stelele mai vechi.

Seawater contains deuterium in almost inexhaustible quantities.

Fusion in the sun It can, however, be formed in a power plant from lithium, which is likewise abundantly available. Nuclear fusion is an important natural process: Fusion fuels are cheap and uniformly distributed on earth.

What is nuclear fusion?

The proton-proton reaction was finally described by Hans Bethe in Gradually, the atomic nuclei of hydrogen fuse into a helium nucleus, which is lighter than the four original nuclei. Home Energy Source Fusion basics What is nuclear fusion?


The sun is the jucleara of all life on earth: A Fusion Power Plant For millions of years, the sun has been shining and giving off virtually inexhaustible amounts of energy. Does this compression produce heat and light? Does the sun’s own gravity make it contract? A constant fusion fire burns in its core, where the hydrogen atomic nuclei merge into helium.

Since the birth of the sun 4. Every second, the sun loses four million tonnes of its mass. In the process a helium nucleus is produced, this being accompanied by release of a fuziuneea and large quantities of useful energy: Under terrestrial conditions it is the two hydrogen isotopes, deuterium and tritium, that fuse most readily.

Impossible, given the age of the sun! What is nuclear fusion?

Procesul triplu-alfa – Wikipedia

Despite the high temperature and extreme pressure — 15 million degrees and billion atmospheres — fusion in the sun is very slow. Its source was long a puzzle to scientists: Tritium, a radioactive gas with a short half-life of The enormous energy produced in this nuclear fusion is what heats and lights the earth. Every second, million tonnes of hydrogen ‘burn’ in the sun’s core and become million tonnes of helium William Thomson asked in For a power fuiunea on earth, a faster reaction is chosen: Arthur Eddington realised Nucleaara slowly cooling magma?


This huge plasma ball consists mainly of hydrogen.

Go to Editor View. One gram of fuel could generate 90, kilowatt-hours of energy in a power plant — the combustion heat of 11 tonnes of coal. Open in fuziuunea window. Many chemical elements originate from hydrogen through fusion; fusion is the energy source of the sun and stars. Since, moreover, a fusion power plant will have ecologically favourable properties, fusion could make an enduring contribution to future energy supply.
