Which of the following best compares a fission and fusion reaction? Both reactions absorb energy, but in a fusion reaction an atomic nucleus splits into fragments, while a fission reaction involves two nuclei joining to form one larger nucleus. Both reactions absorb energy, but in a fission reaction an atomic nucleus splits into fragments, while a fusion reaction involves two nuclei joining to form one larger nucleus. Both reactions release energy, but in a fusion reaction an atomic nucleus splits into fragments, while a fission reaction involves two nuclei joining to form

    this was the four one--- Both reactions release energy, but in a fission reaction an atomic nucleus splits into fragments, while a fusion reaction involves two nuclei joining to form one larger nucleus.

    They both release energy, in the sun fusion occurs (2 hydrogen atoms fuse into 1 helium nucleus), on earth nuclear reactors split heavy (atoms with a lot of protons and neutrons) into smaller ones. fusion = putting together fission = splitting apart
