Textbook Problem

Identify the other element generated in the reaction 235U + 1n → 141Ba + 2 1n + ?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation The other elements generated in the given reaction has to be identified.

Concept introduction:

The "Radioactive decays" are a subgroup of "nuclear reactions" that are spontaneous rather than induced.

Than the nuclear fission reactions a very heavy nucleus, after absorbing additional light particles (usually neutrons), splits into two or sometimes three pieces. This is an induced nuclear reaction.

The newly formed fission fragments have highly unstable neutron to proton ratios which makes them extremely radioactive.

Explanation

Given reaction is

92235U+01n56141Ba+201n+?

From the equation it is clear that when 92235U undergoes fission it gives 56141Ba, so the difference in mass number between them is 94
