Compare with Definitions

Fission

The act or process of splitting into parts.
Oct 05, 2021

Fragmentation

The act or process of breaking into fragments.
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

A nuclear reaction in which an atomic nucleus, especially a heavy nucleus, such as an isotope of uranium, splits into fragments, usually two fragments of comparable but unequal mass along with a few neutrons, releasing energy in the order of magnitude of 100 million electron volts. Nuclear fission may occur spontaneously or may be induced by the absorption of a neutron, which can initiate a nuclear chain reaction.

Fragmentation

The scattering of the fragments of an exploding bomb or other projectile.
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

(Biology) An asexual reproductive process in which a unicellular organism divides into two or more independently maturing daughter cells.

Fragmentation

(Computers) The scattering of parts of a file or files throughout a storage device, as when the operating system breaks up the file and fits it into the spaces left vacant by previously deleted files.

Fission

To cause (an atom) to undergo fission.

Fragmentation

The act of fragmenting or something fragmented; disintegration.

Fission

To undergo fission.

Fragmentation

The process by which fragments of an exploding bomb scatter.

Fission

The process whereby one item splits to become two.

Fragmentation

(computing) The breaking up and dispersal of a file into non-contiguous areas of a disk.

Fragmentation

(computing) The breaking up of a data packet when larger than the transmission unit of a network.

Fission

(biology) The process by which a bacterium splits to form two daughter cells.

Fragmentation

The act or process of separating something into small pieces or fine particles.
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

(transitive) To cause to undergo fission.

Fragmentation

Separating something into fine particles

Fission

(intransitive) To undergo fission.

Fragmentation

The disintegration of social norms governing behavior and thought and social relationships
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

A cleaving, splitting, or breaking up into parts.
Oct 05, 2021

Fragmentation

(computer science) the condition of a file that is broken up and stored in many different locations on a magnetic disk;
Fragmentation slows system performance because it takes extra time to locate and assemble the parts of the fragmented file
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

A method of asexual reproduction among the lowest (unicellular) organisms by means of a process of self-division, consisting of gradual division or cleavage of the into two parts, each of which then becomes a separate and independent organisms; as when a cell in an animal or plant, or its germ, undergoes a spontaneous division, and the parts again subdivide. See Segmentation, and Cell division, under Division.

Fragmentation

The scattering of bomb fragments after the bomb explodes
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

A process by which certain coral polyps, echinoderms, annelids, etc., spontaneously subdivide, each individual thus forming two or more new ones. See Strobilation.
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

The act or process of disintegration of an atomic nucleus into two or more smaller pieces; called also nuclear fission. The process may be spontaneous or induced by capture of neutrons or other smaller nuclei, and usually proceeds with evolution of energy.
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

A nuclear reaction in which a massive nucleus splits into smaller nuclei with the simultaneous release of energy
Oct 05, 2021

Fission

Reproduction of some unicellular organisms by division of the cell into two more or less equal parts
