. Each of the following nuclides is known to undergo radioactive decay by production of an alpha particle. H 2 4 e . Write a balanced nuclear equation for each process.

a. U 92 234

b. R 86 222 n

c. R 75 162 e

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

To write the balanced equation of alpha decay of the given nuclide 234 9 2 U.

Concept Introduction:

The radioactive decay is also known as nuclear transformation. The radioactive decay is the decay of the alpha, beta emission etc. The decay of these type of particles produces the stable nucleus. The nuclear transformation is the chain reaction.

Chain reaction means the reaction proceed in continuity till it will form the stable nucleus.

Alpha decay is the decay in which mass number is decreases by 4 and atomic number is decreases by 2.

Explanation

Alpha decay is the decay in which mass number is decreases by 4 and atomic number is decreases by 2.

The balanced equation after the alpha decay of the given element nuclide.

23492U<

Interpretation Introduction
