Solar energy – nuclear fusion in the sun

How nuclear fusion works in the sun and how photons from this fusion provide us with solar energy here on Earth for things like photovoltaics (solar power), solar domestic how water, solar air heating and solar cooking. Also given is background such as what an atom is and the parts of an atom: neutrons, protons and electrons. Sample atoms are provided: hydrogen, deuterium and carbon atoms. Thanks to Ottawa Solar Power (ottawasolarpower.com) for permission to use my photos of the photovoltaic system and solar domestic hot water system.
