Hello everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question about nuclear fusion.

Deuterium-Tritium fusion generates 3.4 * 10^{14}J/kg when you have a

mixture of around 400 grams of deuterium and 600 grams of tritium.

My question is: what is the rate at which this fusion reaction takes place?

Is there a formula for the fusion rate and what is the reaction speed at, for example, 100 million Kelvin?

I am in high school and I am doing research on nuclear fusion. I was able to calculate the amount of energy released per kg, but I don't know how to calculate the rate at which this reaction takes place depending on the temperature (in kg per m^3 per second).
