Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: It should be written the equation for a nuclear reaction by which nitrogen-18 can achieve stability.

Concept Introduction:

  • Unstable nuclei emit radiation spontaneously to become stable nuclei by losing energy. This process of emission of radiation by unstable nuclei is known as radioactive decay.
  • These emitted radiations may be alpha radiations( α ), beta radiations( β ) or gamma radiations( γ )
  • These unstable nuclei are the nuclei with more than 83 protons and which do not lie within the belt of stability.
  • The neutron proton ratio ( N/P ) of an atomic nucleus is the ratio of its number of neutrons to its number of protons and is important to predict the nuclear stability.
  • For a stable nucleus N/P ratio is one and which lies in the belt of stability of graph of number of protons to number neutrons.
  •   When an isotope is above the belt of stability, N/P ratio is high and there exists a beta emission to decrease the stability.

To write: The equation for a nuclear reaction by which nitrogen-18 can achieve stability.
