In the following nuclear equations, identify the missing product: 238 92 U 4He + 2 234 90 Th 235 92 U + 1n 0 139 I + 2 1n + 0 95 Y 53 39 2. Electron capture t ransforms 40K into what nuclide? 40Ar 19 18 3. Which nuclear process(es) decrease the atomic number by 1? Positron production, E lectron capture 4. What is the “zone of stability”? t he ratio between neutrons and protons where n uclides do not undergo radioactive decay a. How are nuclides with too many neutrons most likely to decay? β− particle p roduction b. How are nuclides with too few neutrons most likely to decay? Positron production 5. Breeder reactors are used to convert the nonfissionable nuclide 238U to a fissionable p roduct. 92 Neut ron capture of the f issionable 92 238 U is followed by 2 successive beta decays. What is the final product? 238Pu 94 6. When the U-235 nucleus is struck with a neutron, the Zn-72 and Sm-160 nuclei are p roduced along with some neutrons. How many neutrons are emitted? 4 ...
