. Which of the following nuclear equations is(are)correct?

a. B 4 7 e L 3 7 i + e 1 0    b. B 5 8 B 4 8 e + e 1 0    c. P 94 239 u + H 2 4 C 96 242 m + H 1 1    d. T 43 97 c + e 1 0 M 42 97 o    e. B 4 7 e + e 1 0 L 3 7 i

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the correct nuclear equation from following:

4Be7   3Li7+-1e0

5B8      4Be8+1e0

94Pu239+2He4   96Cm242+1H1

43Tc97+-1e0   42Mo97

4Be7+-1e0   3Li7.

Concept Introduction:

The decaying of an atom takes place by three type of decay such as alpha decay, beta decay, gama decay.

In alpha decay, an alpha particle with mass 4m and electron 2e removed from nuclide while in beta decay two type of decay are possible beta (+) and beta (-). In gamma decay, nuclide will remain same to the original one.

Explanation

Reason for correct options:

5B8      4Be8+1e0

The above equation is balanced as the total number of proton on reactant is 5 and total mass on reactant side is 8 while on product side total number of proton is (4+1 = 5) and total mass on reactant side is 8.
