. Complete each of the following nuclear equations by supplying the missing particle.

a. R 88 226 a ? + R 86 222 n    b. B 4 9 e + H 1 1 e ? + H 2 4 e    c. O 8 17 + ? C 6 14 + H 1 3

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

Interpret and complete the following reaction.

88Ra226         86Rn222   + x.

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

Alpha particle decaying of Ra results in formation of radon with mass 222 as follows:

88Ra226
