Textbook Problem

Boron is an effective absorber of neutrons. When boron-10 is bombarded by neutrons, an α particle is emitted. Write an equation for this nuclear reaction.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Equation has to be written for the nuclear reaction when boron-10 is bombarded by neutrons, an Alpha particle is emitted.

Concept introduction:

In this radioactive decay process the unstable isotopes loses their energy by emitting radiation. It is converted in to stable isotopes. The emitting radiations are positron emission, Alpha emission, beta emission, gamma emission and electron capture.

Explanation

The radioactive isotope of Boron-10 is transmitted in to Lithium-7 by the emission of alpha particle. In this series Boron-10 is unstab...
