    Please no pictures I need the answer typed out, thank you. A radioactive nucleus alpha decays to yield a sodium-24 nucleus in 14.8 hours. What was the identity of the original nucleus? Show the nuclear equation that leads you to this answer.

    Expert Answer

    Let X be the nucleus.

    Please no pictures I deficiency the counter-argument typed quenched, rejoice you.

    A radioactive center alpha sinkings to grant a sodium-24 center in 14.8 hours. What was the sameness of the primary center? Show the nuclear equation that leads you to this counter-argument.

    Expert Counter-argument

    Let X be the center.

    Then upon alpha sinking it gives sodium-24.

    The balanced reaction is 13 Al 27 —–> 11 Na 23 + 2 He 4

    So the primary center is Al-27
