Nuclear Fission/Fussion

  1. Feb 23, 2008 #1

    Is it appropriate to start a thread in the nuclear physics part of the site on both nuclear fission and nuclear fussion. The reason I am asking is because I know the forum guidelines have touched upon bombs and illegal activities, but I do not intend to do either.

    Thanks. _Mayday_

    That topic is more appropriate in the Nuclear Engineering forum.

    Thanks Zz, I'd rather be sure than do something against the rules. It may have sounded like an pbvious question, but that was not the case wth me.

    At the very least, I'd consider calling it nuclear fusion. :tongue:

    I thought if one had an s then so should the other! =]

    Fission and fusion are commonly discussed in the Nuclear Engineering forum, although some aspects related to the physics are discussed in the High Energy, Nuclear, Particle Physics Forum.

    I didn't mean any offense, Mayday. I just like to play with words. Welcome to Dangerland.

    Ah ok then, thanks for that I would have posted in the Particle Physics forum, but my questions are quite simple and are relatively basic. Thanks.

    I'll post in a while though I'll do some more research into it before I ask a question. o:)

    I know you didn't :smile:
