When a fission reaction occurs, energy is always released in the reaction.

How do the masses of the reactants and products compare for this type of reaction.

A

$${ m }_{ reactants }\quad <\quad { m }_{ products }$$

B

$${ m }_{ reactants }\quad >\quad { m }_{ products }$$

C

$${ m }_{ reactants }\quad =\quad { m }_{ products }$$

D

In some fission reactions, answer A is correct, and in other fission reactions, answer B is correct.
