Problems: Fusion Power

IB Physics: Problems: Fusion Power

1. An example of a fusion reaction is:3He + 3He →4He + 2pa. Use the hyperphysics database to look up binding energies and hence calculate the amount of energy released per fusion.b. The density of the sun’s core is 160gcm-3. Calculate the energy released in J if 1cm3 of 3He were to fuse to form 4He.c. The temperature of the core is 15MK. calculate the amount of KE contained by all of the nuclei in 1cm3 of the core....
