    What do you know about the question so far? Where is the energy for a chemical reaction stored? Where is the energy for a nuclear reaction stored? What is the difference between a nuclear fusion reaction and a nuclear fission reaction? Tell us what you know so we can point you to resources where you can figure out this homework problem of yours.
