Why the radio carbon collides? Please explain.

Bismark Boadu said:   2 years ago
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.

Collision means accident.

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

What is collisions? How to produce radiocarbon?

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

In which form is nitrogen nucleic present in the atmosphere?

Jit said:   5 years ago
Just like radiocarbon, another radio elements like radionitrogen, radiooxygen etc produced in the atmosphere or not?

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?
