P6_1 Fusion For Breakfast

Katie Knowles, Jack Strachan-Deol, Laura Thompson, Aidan Kelly


In this paper, an investigation is conducted to determine whether the human jaw is strong enough to fuse two hydrogen atoms together. It is found that the human jaw could bite down and successfully fuse 14 pairs of hydrogen atoms simultaneously. Given the energy generated via this fusion, it is then determined that it would take a human 3.204×10^10 yrs - 8.520×10^10 yrs to induce a sufficient number of fusion reactions to meet the average human’s daily energy requirements, thus implying that a human could not hypothetically sustain themselves solely on hydrogen fusion.
