Which equation represents a fission reaction?

Nuclear fission can occur without neutron bombardment as a type of radioactive decay. This type of fission (called spontaneous fission) is rare except in a few heavy isotopes. In engineered nuclear devices essentially all nuclear fission occurs as a “nuclear reaction” — a bombardment-driven process that results from the collision of two subatomic particles. In nuclear reactions a subatomic particle collides with an atomic nucleus and causes changes to it. Nuclear reacti…

Small amounts of fission products are naturally formed as the result of either spontaneous fission of natural uranium which occurs at a low rate or as a result of neutrons from radioactive decay or reactions with cosmic ray particles. The microscopic tracks left by these fission products in some natural minerals (mainly apatite and zircon) are used in fission track dating to provide the cooling (crystallization) ages of natural rocks. The technique has an effective datingrange of 0.1 Ma to >1.0 Ga depending on the miner…

Fission and fusion. Nuclear energy is released by the splitting (fission) or merging (fusion) of the nuclei of atom(s). The conversion of nuclear mass-energy to a form of energy which can remove some mass when the energy is removed is consistent with the mass-energy equivalence formula: ΔE = Δm c 2 in w…
