Question

The stability belt is when the neutron and proton ratios are ______

check_circleAnswer
Step 1

A neutron is a subatomic particle which is found in the nucleus of almost every atom except that of hydrogen. This particle has derived its name from the fact that it carries no charge and is electrically neutral.

Step 2

A proton is a subatomic particle which carries a positive electric charge and its mass is slightly less than that of a neutron. Protons and neutrons each having masses that are approximately equal to one atomic mass unit, collectively are known as “nucleons”.

Step 3

A plot of number of neutrons versus number of protons for a stable nucleus describes that the st...
