🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Bindell's class at UCF.

We’re being asked to determine if energy is released or absorbed by the reaction and calculate how much energy is released or absorbed.

We're given the following nuclear reaction:

${}_{\mathbf{1}}{}^{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{}\mathbf{H}\mathbf{}\mathbf{+}\mathbf{}{}_{\mathbf{1}}{}^{\mathbf{3}}\mathbf{}\mathbf{H}\mathbf{}\mathbf{\to}{}_{\mathbf{2}}{}^{\mathbf{4}}\mathbf{}\mathbf{He}\mathbf{}\mathbf{+}\mathbf{}{}_{\mathbf{1}}{}^{\mathbf{0}}\mathbf{}\mathbf{n}$

We have to calculate for the **mass defect and energy released by the reaction**, we’re going to use the following steps:

**Step 1***: Calculate the mass defect (Δm).***Step 2***: Calculate the mass defect (Δm) in kg.*

Based on the following atomic mass values - ^{1}H, 1.00782 amu; ^{2}H, 2.01410 amu; ^{3}H, 3.01605 amu; ^{3}He, 3.01603 amu; ^{4}He, 4.00260 amu-and the mass of the neutron given in the text, calculate the energy change per mole in each of the following nuclear reactions, all of which are possibilities for a controlled fusion process.

_{1}^{2}H + _{1}^{3}H → _{2}^{4}He + _{0}^{1}n
