      Nuclear Fusion

    • B.

      Nuclear Fission

    • C.

      Both 

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Nuclear Fission
    Explanation
    The atomic bomb is based on the principle of nuclear fission. Nuclear fission is the process in which the nucleus of an atom is split into two or more smaller nuclei, releasing a large amount of energy. In an atomic bomb, this process is initiated by bombarding a highly unstable isotope, such as uranium-235 or plutonium-239, with neutrons. This causes the nucleus to split, releasing a tremendous amount of energy in the form of an explosion. Nuclear fusion, on the other hand, is the process of combining two or more atomic nuclei to form a larger nucleus, and it is the principle behind the energy production in the sun and other stars.
