    fusion: going from smaller to larger think of gluing pieces together to get a bigger molecule |dw:1441511450305:dw|

    fission 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|

    the exact technical details are a bit more complicated, but this is the basic idea

    They asked for _fission_ not fusion.

    ooo ok so it is correct because it goes from big to small to release energy

    yeah `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
