**Quick Navigation Panel**hide

**If an element X of atomic number Z and mass number Y is irradiated by an intense concentration of neutrons, the relevant nuclear equation is**

**QUICK ANSWER…**

**B**

**DETAILS… **

**Total atomic number of a product must be = total atomic number of reactants = Z + 0 = Z**

**Total mass number of a product must be = total mass number of reactants = Y + 1**

**Option B.**

**Now for the right answer to the above question:**

**Option A is incorrect. wrong mass number and atomic number of a product.****Option B is correct. equal total mass and atomic number on both sides.****C is incorrect. wrong mass number and atomic number of an product.****D is not the correct answer. Correct mass number, but wrong atomic number.**

**QUICK TIPS…**

**You may please note these/this:**

**Simple addition of all the mass numbers and atomic numbers on both sides must be equal.**
