We are asked to think of a process not involving radioactive decay for which 14CO2 would behave differently from 12CO2.
Recall that in a nuclear reaction, the number of protons and neutrons is affected and the identity of the element changes.
Can you think of a process not involving radioactive decay for which 14CO2 would behave differently from 12CO2?
