Textbook Problem

Verify that the total number of nucleons, total charge, and electron family number are conserved for each of the fusion reactions in the carbon cycle given in the above problem. (List the value of each of the conserved quantifies before and after each of the reactions.)

To determine

To Verify:

that the total number of nucleons, total charge, and electron family number are conserved for each of the fusion reactions in the carbon cycle given in the above problem.

Explanation

Carbon cycle is given by

  C12+H1N13+γN13C13+e++υeC13+H1N14+γN14+H1O15+γO15N15+e++υeN15+H1C12+H4e

  1. C12+H1N13+γ
  2. Nucleons

      LHS = 12 + 1 = 13

      RHS = 13

      Hence verified.

    Total charge

      LHS = 6+1 = 7

      RHS = 7

      Hence verified.

    Electron family number

      LHS = 0

      RHS = 0

      Hence verified.

  3. N13C13+e++υe
  4. Nucleons

      LHS = 13

      RHS = 13

      Hence verified
