Write nuclear equations for the following process: positron emission of radium-226


Expert Answer

Step 1

A chemical reaction is symbolic representation of the conversion of substances to new substances.

In a chemical reaction; the substance which involves in conversion is said to be reactant whereas the newly formed substance is called as product. Both reactant and products must be separated by arrow.

Step 2

Like chemical reactions, nuclear reactions are type of chemical reaction only but here in place of molecular formulae of compounds, the nuclei representations must be used. Nuclear reactions involve the conversion of one nuclei to another with emission or absorption of certain particles like positron, beta particles, alpha particles or gamma rays.

Step 3

Nuclear reactions can be balanced with the help of atomic number and mass numbers of nuclei...
