Textbook Problem

Verify that the total number of nucleons, and total charge are conserved for each of the following fusion reactions in the proton-proton chain.

  1. 1 H + 1 H 2 H + e + + v e

  • 1 H + 2 H 3 H + γ and
  • 3 H e + 3 H e 4 H e + 1 H + 1 H .
  • (List the value of each of the conserved quantities before and after each of the reactions.)

    To determine

    (i)

    Whether the nucleons and total charge is conserved for the fusion reaction.

    Explanation

    Given:

    Introduction:

    To determine the number of nucleons, and total charge, table is drawn which represents the number of the protons, neutrons and the nucleons of elements, and on the basis of table we can determine that total charge, and nucleus is conserved or not conserved.

    The fusion reaction is given by,

      1H+1H2H+e++ve

    In order to calculate the number of the nucleons, table is drawn in which sum of neutron and proton, charge is tabulated.

    n+pCharge
    2(1H)2+2
    To determine

    (ii)

    Whether the nucleons and total charge is conserved for the fusion reaction.

    To determine

    (iii)

    Whether the nucleons and total charge is conserved for the fusion reaction.
