In the equation above, the particles X is


Question

14N +4He →17O + X
728

In the equation above, the particles X is

Options

A) a proton

B) a neutron

C) an α - particle

D) a β - particle


The correct answer is A.

Explanation:

for the conversion of mass 14 + 4 = 17 + x
∴ X = 18 - 17 = 1
for conservation pf charge:7 + 2 = 8 + y
y = 9 - 8 = 1
Thus, the element is 11X which is equal to hydrogen nucleus ( proton)
