# Lithium (Z = 3) Has Two Stable Isotopes 6li and 7li. When Neutrons Are Bombarded on Lithium Sample, Electrons and α-particles Are Ejected. Write Down the Nuclear Process Taking Place. - Physics

#### Question

Lithium (Z = 3) has two stable isotopes 6Li and 7Li. When neutrons are bombarded on lithium sample, electrons and α-particles are ejected. Write down the nuclear process taking place.

#### Solution

The nuclear process taking place is shown below.

""_8^6"L_i" + n → ""_3^7L_i

""_3^7L_i + n → ""_3^8L_i → ""_4^8"Be" + barv + e^-

""_4^8"Be" → ""_2^4"He" + ""_2^4"He"

Is there an error in this question or solution?
