From where we get fast neutron?

Vivek said: (Oct 12, 2010)  
Fast moving neutron have a sufficient energy to penetrate the nitrogen nucleus and absorbedby it. Hence it make a intermdiate unstable element finallyit gives carbon-14 and a electron.

Sabari said: (Jan 7, 2011)  
Suppose the nitrogen nucleus and fast neutrons are collision, what will happen?

Vinay Kumar Gupta said: (Feb 15, 2011)  
Neutron absorbed is good and the energy is sufficient for that it is unstable elment.

Priya Mahajan said: (Feb 26, 2011)  
Fast moving neutrons are produce due to fission of fissile materias.

Mack Patel said: (Sep 22, 2012)  
I agree with a but please tell me what is properties of radio carbon ? Why it is processed with only nitrogen instead of any gases ?

Prakash Sharma Nahan said: (Oct 23, 2012)  
The neutrons these are produced in atmosphere from the sun radiation i.e.cosmic rays. So that the obtained neutron is then reacts with the nitrogen which is present in the atmosphere and produce radioactive element.

Vanessa Adomah Nassarah said: (Dec 9, 2012)  
Radiocarbon dating usually referred to as simply carbon is a radiometric dating method that uses the naturally occurring radioisotope carbon-14 14c. It is a method used by archaeologist to date organic materials by comparing the amount of carbon 14 c14 available in living creature.

Ammu said: (Feb 20, 2013)  
Radiocarbon is present in the atmosphere due to pollution and bombardment of collision between fast neutron.

Siva Balaji said: (Mar 4, 2013)  
In every atom there is a small amount of carbon. From that we will calculate the radiocarbon dating.

Gayatri Ashok said: (Apr 4, 2013)

Alisha said: (Apr 22, 2013)  
I agree with this but what is the properties of radio carbon?

Saurabh Sharma said: (Apr 27, 2013)

Sajid said: (Nov 11, 2013)  
I am not getting reason of the give question explain please any body clearly.

Bagla said: (Nov 25, 2013)  
Explanation is clear i.e. Fast moving neutron have a sufficient energy to penetrate the nitrogen nucleus and absorbed by it. Hence it make a intermediate unstable element finally it gives carbon-14 and a electron.

Nadir said: (Dec 15, 2013)  
Please give reason why fast neutrons penetrate neutrons in atmosphere?

Vasu said: (Dec 20, 2013)  
What is radio carbon?

Gulsan Chandrakar said: (Dec 21, 2013)  
1st there is given that the radiocarbon is produced due to collision between the fast neutron and nuclei of nitrogen let prove it fast neutron is produced due to collision of UV ray from sun and any particle in atm, and the nuclei of nitrogen is also form from a any particle, radiocarbon is not dangerous it is also observe by the plants.

Yasha said: (Dec 24, 2013)  
What is radiocarbon dating? Describe it. Is there only one source of fast moving neutrons i.e. sun? Can we define all living creature's age by radioactive dating? Or only human's age.

Oteng said: (Jan 17, 2014)  
What is radiocarbon?

MESFIN said: (Feb 8, 2014)  
How we get fast neutron?

Sakshi said: (Mar 17, 2014)  
Can we use other atom except nitrogen?

Gurnam Minhas said: (Mar 28, 2014)  
Carbon-14 is a problem in nuclear plants because it is radioactive. It is produced as a result of nitrogen atom's nucleus being hit by a fast neutron. The fast neutrons are result of collision between a slow neutron and uranium atoms in the nuclear reactor.

Prajna said: (May 26, 2014)  
Did this collision need artificial?

Anfernee said: (Jun 2, 2014)  
Radiocarbon is formed when the neutrons which have a proton number of +1. When the Nitrogen, are bombarded with neutrons, an electron is removed from the Nitrogen, producing Radiocarbon.

Suba said: (Aug 4, 2014)  
I agree 6C14 is unstable but how you say this is radioactive element which element called radioactive element what reason what is application of radioactive element in the earth and how much amount present everyday.

Emmanuel Osei said: (Mar 24, 2018)  
What is radiocarbon, you are talking about?

Man said: (May 29, 2018)  
Just before the collision, mass number is 14, after the collision, if it absorbed the neutron then the mass number will be 15 and the atomic number will be 7, i.e 7N15. Which is unstable. It will release an electron and neutron and become 6c14. Am I right?

Jit said: (Jun 4, 2018)  
Just like radiocarbon, another radio elements like radionitrogen, radiooxygen etc produced in the atmosphere or not?

What is radiocarbon? how option (A) is correct? explain this clearly.

Rubyy said: (Aug 17, 2020)  
What is collisions? How to produce radiocarbon?

Nikki Nikhila said: (Jun 1, 2021)  
Collision means accident.

Radiocarbon means the accident between fast neutron and nitrogen neutron then radio carbon is produced.

Bismark Boadu said: (Jul 15, 2021)  
Yes, option A is correct.

Because the fast neutrons collides with the nucleus of nitrogen in the atmosphere it creates an intermediate as a result.
