Homework Help: Fusion vs Fission

  1. Jun 21, 2006 #1
    I was wondering if somebody out there might be able to help with my problem, by posting a suitable web-link if they happen to know one. I need to know the differences between Fusion and Fission. I understand that fusion is when atoms of a light element are combined to an atom of a heavier element, and that fission is the splitting of a heavier atom. However that is where my knowledge ends. Thanks in advance to those who reply,
