We’re being asked to identify the missing particles for the given nuclear reaction:
____ → 85217 At + 24 He
Recall that in a nuclear reaction, the number of protons and neutrons is affected and the identity of the element changes. For alpha decay, an alpha particle (42α, atomic mass = 4, atomic number = 2) is formed as a product
Fill in the missing particles in each of the following nuclear equations.
____ → 85217 At +24 He
