# Problem: Write the balanced nuclear equation for the reaction represented by the diagram shown here.

###### FREE Expert Solution Neutral atom = # protons = atomic number

mass number = # of protons + # of neutrons

Reactant:

# of neutrons = 63
# of protons = 46
mass number = 63 +46 = 109

Element atomic # 46 = Palladium (Pd)

${}_{\mathbf{46}}{}^{\mathbf{109}}\mathbf{Pd}$

Product:

# of neutrons = 62
# of protons = 47
mass number = 62 +47 = 109

Element atomic # 47 = Silver (Ag)

${}_{\mathbf{47}}{}^{\mathbf{109}}\mathbf{Ag}$
