Nuclear Chemistry

Top  Previous  Next

FX Chem 2 introduces the use of curly brackets (braces) to produce nuclear chemistry equations.

 

For example:

 

{238,92} U

 

will be formatted as

 

clip1373

 

It is important to note that FX Chem does NOT check the validity of the mass numbers and atomic numbers.  That is up to you.  It does, however, give you a quick and easy way to produce the equations.

 

Neutrons, protons and electrons can be entered as follows:

 

{1,0} n                        {1,1}p                        {0,-1}e

 

The curly brackets can be used in a neat trick (see 5.16)
