Question 6: While fusion reactors like ITER and DEMO will not produce transuranic wastes, some of the components of the ITER and DEMO reactors will become radioactive due to ________ impinging upon them.

Question 7: The activation energy for fusion is very large because the ________ in each nucleus strongly repel one another; they are both positively charged.
