Answer: B
Gold can undergo transmutation. Which equation could correctly describe this radioactive decay?

Sun Oct 30 2005 13:30:00 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time) ยท Nuclear binding energy is the minimum energy that would be required to disassemble the nucleus of an atom into its component parts. These component parts are neutrons and protons which are collectively called nucleons.The binding energy is always a positive number as we need to spend energy in moving these nucleons attracted to each other by the strong nuclear force away from each other.

Nuclear physics is the field of physics that studies atomic nuclei and their constituents and interactions. Other forms of nuclear matter are also studied.. Nuclear physics should not be confused with atomic physics which studies the atom as a whole including its electrons.. Discoveries in nuclear physics have led to applications in many fields. This includes nuclear power nuclear weapons …

Plutonium-239 (239 Pu Pu-239) is an isotope of plutonium.Plutonium-239 is the primary fissile isotope used for the production of nuclear weapons although uranium-235 has also been used. Plutonium-239 is also one of the three main isotopes demonstrated usable as fuel in thermal spectrum nuclear reactors along with uranium-235 and uranium-233.Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24 110 years.

The very heaviest elements (those beyond plutonium element 94) undergo radioactive decay with half-lives so short that they are not found in nature and must be synthesized. There are now 118 known elements. In this context “known” means observed well enough even from just a few decay products to have been differentiated from other elements.

Thorium is a weakly radioactive metal…
