Worksheet: Neutron Emission
In this worksheet, we will practice how to describe the process of unstable atoms decaying to a lower energy state by emitting neutrons.
Beryllium-15 is an isotope of beryllium that is highly unstable. It does not occur naturally, but it can be created synthetically. Beryllium-15 decays via neutron emission. This is shown in the graph.
What isotope does beryllium-15 decay to?
Which of the following nuclear equations correctly shows beryllium-13 undergoing neutron emission?
Which of the following symbols represents a neutron?
The following nuclear equation shows neutron emission by boron-18.
What is the name of element X?
What element symbol should replace X?
The following nuclear equation shows neutron emission by lithium-12.
What is the value of in the equation?
The diagram shows a nucleus undergoing neutron emission. Red circles represent protons and grey circles represent neutrons.
What isotope is shown in the diagram before the reaction takes place?
What isotope is produced through this decay?
