Short Answer So the short answer is turbulent motion of the photospheric plasma on the sun. Long Answer The underlying physical mechanism is related to the concept of frozen-in magnetic flux, which is assumed in ideal MHD. This can be derived in a similar manner to how one derives the conservation of vorticity, but here it is magnetic flux. If we define ...


You question isn't specific enough; it needs a little work to clarify the fusion setup. For example, what fuel type are you talking about fusing? Is there confinement, so that this is a thermal fusion reaction, or would just one fusion reaction be sufficient? For example, the temperature required to overcome the Coulomb barrier for deuterium-tritium ...
