Both fission and fusion are nuclearreactions that produce energy, but the applications are not the same. Fissionis the splitting of a heavy, unstable nucleus into two lighter nuclei, andfusion is the process where two light nuclei combine together releasing vast amounts of energy.

Nuclear Fission ⇒ Nuclear Fission is a process in which a heavy nucleus , after capturing a neutron ,splits up into two lighter nuclei of comparable masses . In the fission of a heavy nucleus into two lighter nuclei of intermediate masses is bound to release a large amount of energy.

Example ⇒
₉₂ U ²³⁵ + ₀ n¹ ⇒ ₅₀ Ba ¹⁴¹ + ₃₆ Kr ⁹² + 3 ₀ n ¹ + Δ Q ( Energy )

Nuclear Fusion ⇒ When two or more very light nuclei moving at very higher speeds are fused together to form a single nucleus , then the process is known as " Nuclear Fusion " .

Example ⇒ 
₁ H ¹ + ₁ H ³ ⇒ ₂ He ⁴ + Δ Q ( Energy )
