Neutral atom = # protons = atomic number
mass number = # of protons + # of neutrons
# of neutrons = 63
# of protons = 46
mass number = 63 +46 = 109
Element atomic # 46 = Palladium (Pd)
# of neutrons = 62
# of protons = 47
mass number = 62 +47 = 109
Element atomic # 47 = Silver (Ag)
Write the balanced nuclear equation for the reaction represented by the diagram shown here.
