Textbook Problem

Write equations that describe the preparation of technetium-99m from molybdenum-98.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

A nuclear equation has to be written for the preparation of Technetium-99m from Molybdenum-98.

Concept introduction:

Nuclear reactions: The "Radioactive decays" are a subgroup of "nuclear reactions" that are spontaneous rather than induced. The fission reactions a very heavy nucleus, after absorbing additional light particles (usually neutrons), splits into two or three.

Explanation

The corresponding nuclear reactions are shown below.
