Meaning of Fusion

What is Fusion:

Fusion refers to the action and effect of melting or blending. It comes from the Latin merge, fusionis, which in turn is derived from fusum, supine of I will melt, which means 'melt'.

Fusion can designate a union: of ideas, interests or projects. In politics, for example, there may be a merger of parties motivated by a strategy for electoral purposes.

In the same way, one can speak of fusion to indicate the meeting of two or more things in one: of two or more powers in a State, or of two or more departments in a company.

In addition, in areas such as gastronomy, the combination of styles, flavors and ingredients from different countries and cultures is a gastronomic practice known as fusion.

The same in music when experimenting with the fusion of different genres, for example, symphonic rock or the variety referred to by jazz fusion, which can combine salsa, bossa nova or rock with jazz.

Fusion in Physics

Fusion is a concept in Physics that designates the process that a substance undergoes when, having reached its melting point, it passes from a solid state to a liquid, due to an increase in temperature and a certain pressure.

Melting point

As the melting point we know the temperature at which a fusion takes place, considering the pressure. It is constant and invariable when a substance is subjected to normal pressure.

In the same way, its temperature will be constant during the time of melting, that is, once the melting point is reached, it will not increase.

The melting point varies from substance to substance, and that is why it represents a characteristic property for each element. In water, for example, the melting point occurs at 0 ° C at the pressure of one atmosphere.

It goes also Melting point.

Melting and boiling

An increase in temperature, beyond the melting point, will bring the substance, already in a liquid state, to its boiling point and, consequently, it will change to the gaseous state.

See also Boiling.

Fusion and solidification

The melting point coincides with the solidification or freezing point, that is to say, in the opposite direction: the passage of a liquid substance to a solid state by lowering the temperature at a given pressure.

Nuclear fusion

In Physics, nuclear fusion refers to the exothermic nuclear reaction produced by the union of two light atomic nuclei, giving way to a heavier nucleus and a significant release of energy.

Solar energy, for example, originates from the nuclear fusion of hydrogen that occurs in the Sun, the same occurs in the rest of the stars in the Universe. Nuclear fusion is essential in the reaction of thermonuclear bombs or hydrogen bombs.
