**SILENCEnight rolled a random image posted in comment #4358673 at Click an item and pick it up ** when 2 hydrogen atoms collide they form H2 gas. Nice try OP

That's what happens in a combustion reaction. But in a nuclear reaction they combine and form helium.
#47 to #28 - pebar ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
actually.........

Two simple hydrogen atoms cannot form helium. The helium nucleus that would form would be so outrageously unstable that it would just decay right away. The net result is deuterium, an isotope of hydrogen.
Yes I know if you fuse the larger isotopes like deuterium and tritium then you would get helium and those technically are still hydrogens but the content clearly shows simple single-proton hydrogens.

The Net state is irrelevant. If They can fuse for even a attosecond it can be considered a product of the reaction. If you alter the time parameter of any reaction you can debase any findings. By that logic, Pb can end up as a lot of hydrogen in a conserved system simply because of Alpha and gamma bombardment.

reaction intermediate would've been a better way to say it than transition state
#61 to #59 - fresighto (09/07/2013) [-]
I feel like you're right here, as much as I hate to say It. I could argue semantics and parameters here, but there's not too much of a point. Also, MAN did we go too deep on a picture of dancing atoms lol.
User avatar #58 to #56 - pebar ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
But helium is not the product, it's just like transition states in nearly every chemical reaction that isn't as simple as A + B --> C...... it's not stable enough to be a product; its half life is actually much less than an attosecond. It wasn't even confirmed to exist until recently.

It depends on the temperature, at 500 kelvin, it forms H2, at 100000000 kelvin, fusion occurs

hydrogen bomb! uses a little fission to get the heat required for fusion to occur, then it goes with that for the rest! Much cleaner, a lot less fallout
User avatar #62 to #3 - joefakes (09/07/2013) [-]
According to The Google, that's a picture of 'Operation Castle - Romeo Event', which was a thermonuclear device (fission acting as a spark to start fusion).

a fusion explosion is not much different
#7 to #4 - runningwyeld (09/07/2013) [-]
It's the exact opposite of a fusion explosion. It doesn't get much different than the opposite
#9 to #7 - Rascal (09/07/2013) [-]
end result is an explosion, lets not nit pick here
#10 to #9 - runningwyeld (09/07/2013) [-]
Nit picking? Seriously?
Fine. Alright.
#12 to #10 - Rascal (09/07/2013) [-]
they are indistinguishable a fission or fusion explosion except by the size of the explosion. especially since fusion bombs contain a fission bomb as well to get enough energy to start off the fission reaction

I wonder what Gohan's and Goku's fusion would've been like. Probably super badass.
User avatar #32 to #11 - admiralen ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
doubtful, gohan was way more powerful than goku so they would be unbalanced
#53 to #32 - Rascal (09/07/2013) [-]
true but they were going to use the potara fusion not the dance so it wouldnt matter
User avatar #64 to #53 - admiralen ONLINE (09/08/2013) [-]
yeah, but if its unbalanced the weaker one ends up weighing the stronger one down

The process in an atomic bomb is called fission not fusion. You split an atom into 2 smaller part. Fusion requires alot more energi, depending on the atoms combined. Fusion happens in the sun
#14 to #13 - pentol (09/07/2013) [-]
did you know that the weight of each particle in the atom changes depending on what atom they are in?
2 hydrogen are heavier than a helium atom, so that when they fuse, there is excess mass.
this mass is turned into energy, explained in the famous E=mc^2 (or in this example (excess) mass x (speed of light^2)=lots of energy.

the same thing in happens in reverse when you split (fission) the atom. an uranium atom is heavier than 2 ****************************** , again leaving excess mass, turned into energy.
#16 to #14 - Rascal (09/07/2013) [-]
You need to pay attention in scienceclass. 2 hydrogen atoms are not heavier than a helium atom. 4 hydrogen atoms are heavier than a helium atom. Also they don't fuse because they are heavier, they do it because of extreamly high temperatures and pressure. Last but not least 2 hydrogen atoms fusing together creates deuterium(proton+neutron(isotpe of hydrogen)).
User avatar #17 to #16 - exclamation (09/07/2013) [-]
Are you forgetting that when you fuse atoms, we just don't count these neutrons with these protons? It all comes together. So, if two hydrogen atoms were fused, it would become Helium. We have 1 proton and 1 electron from each atom, and it is for that reason that the fusion would not yield deuterium. It would be an isotope of Helium.
User avatar #18 to #17 - exclamation (09/07/2013) [-]
Plus, he isn't saying that they fuse because they're heavier than their yielded product. He is saying that, when they do fuse, that it is because that they are heavier than their yield product (seperately) that there will be waste product (energy when together).
#49 to #18 - Rascal (09/07/2013) [-]
#17: Of course you count the neutrons they are just as important as the protons, you don't count the electrons when fusing. Also you can't fuse two protons it is physically impossible because they both are positivly charged and the electromagnetic force will grow unendingly big the closer they get to eachother.

#18: That one was my mistake i misread it
User avatar #67 to #49 - exclamation (09/08/2013) [-]
You can't count the neutrons because there AREN'T ANY.
#57 to #49 - fresighto (09/07/2013) [-]
I'd just like to point out how crazy it is we get ANYTHING done chemically since you can't predict where electrons actually are, just a probability.
#21 to #16 - pentol (09/07/2013) [-]
take a look at the periodic table, and tell me how heavy you expect 2 hydrogen atoms to be, compared to 1 helium atom.
you would expect them to be equal, but they aren't, the hydrogen is heavier.
this is because of reasons.
#46 to #21 - Rascal (09/07/2013) [-]
Two hydrogen atoms = 2.01588 units
one helium atom = 4.002602 units

Actually, no, that's incorrect. What is pictured here is atoms doing fusion to produce the result of fission. That is not what happens.
