Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think the nuclear fusion, since the nuclear fusion means the fusion of 4 nucleus together, of Hydrogen to get 1 nucleus of Helium

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it is not nuclear fusion? or it is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alpha emission can not be the right answer since an alpha particle leaves a nucleus, so the final nucleus is lighter than the initial one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for beta emission, the nuclear process involved is: \[n \to p + {e^  } + {\bar \nu _e}\] now the proton is lighter than the neutron, so also beta emission can not be the right answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nuclear fission can not be the right answer, since from one atom of Uranium we get two halves of that atom plus other neutrons
