Solution: The reaction that allows radiocarbon dating to be performed is the continual formation of carbon-14 in the upper atmosphere:What is the energy change that is associated with this process in eV/reactio

Problem

The reaction that allows radiocarbon dating to be performed is the continual formation of carbon-14 in the upper atmosphere:


What is the energy change that is associated with this process in eV/reaction and in kJ/mol reaction? (Masses of atoms:  14N = 14.003074 amu; 14C = 14.003241 amu; 1H = 1.007825 amu; mass of 1n = 1.008665 amu.)
