Textbook Problem

Verify that the total number at nucleons, total charge, and electron family number are conserved for each of the fusion reactions in the proton—proton cycle in 1 H+ 1 H 2 H+ e + + v e , 1 H+ 2 H 3 H e + γ , and 2 H+ 3 He 4 H e + + 1 H+ 1 H . (List the value of each of the conserved quantities before and after each of the reactions.)

To determine

That the total number of nucleons, total charge, and electron family number are conserved for each of the fusion reactions in the proton-proton cycle in

  H1+H1H2+e++υeH1+H2H3e+γ

and

  H3e+H3eH4e+H1+H1

(List the value of each of the conserved quantities before and after each of the reactions.)

Explanation

Checking all the values for LHS and RHS

  1. H1+H1H2+e++υe
  2. Nucleons

      LHS = 1 + 1 = 2

      RHS = 2

      Hence verified.

    Total charge

      LHS = 1+1 = 2

      RHS = 1+ 1 = 2

      Hence verified.

    Electron family number

      LHS = 0

      RHS = -1 + 1 = 0

      Hence verified.

  3. H1+H2H3e+γ
  4. Nucleons

      LHS = 1 + 2 = 3

      RHS = 3

      Hence verified
