Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3fission is the opposite direction think of "fissure" as in cut or break in the ground. Fission is the process of breaking up bigger molecules into smaller ones to release energy dw:1441511515174:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooo ok so it is correct because it goes from big to small to release energy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yeah `Fission is a nuclear process in which small nuclei are combined into larger nuclei, releasing energy` is false because the chunk that says `nuclear process in which small nuclei are combined into larger nuclei, releasing energy` that's describing fusion (not fission) so in short fission: break up, tear apart fusion: build up, combine, glue together those may be shorthand ways to remember the terms
