Matching; Pick from the following; Atomic number, Mass Number, Isotope,
a. Latest student of the month
b. Spontaneous decay of nucleus
c. Sum of protons and neutrons

Write the symbol on the line
Balancing Nuclear equations, make sure the mass numbers (top) and atomic
numbers (bottom) balance. Use periodic table to select element symbol!
A fusion is joining of nuclei, fission is splitting of nuclei, radioactive emission is
nuclei spitting out particles!
Fusion in Sun
Uranium alpha emission 23582U
Thorium positron emission 23180Th
Actinium beta emission
Splitting of Thorium nucleus by neutron bombardment.
23190Th + 'on
A "chain reaction" is a "self sustaining" nuclear reaction. For instance in the
neutron bombardment of 235u three high energy neutrons are produced which
can hit three more Uranium nuclei producing nine more neutrons to continue the
chain. What would cause the chain to stop?
235 92U + 1 on
