Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Ok, so what exactly are you willing to know about Nuclear Chemistry?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok... just in general.... what is it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Anyway, I would like to say the following... The chemistry in general deals with the electrons, and we generally don't get involved into any details about the nucleus while we are discussing about any chemical reaction..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya.... I know about electrons... cause we just finished learning about atoms and atomic structure!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3And it is not that we are not interested about the nucleus of the atom, while we are dealing with a simple chemical reaction, but it is that, nothing significant happens inside it, during a chemical reaction...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. the unit is all about chemical reactions, of such chemicals?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The nucleus gets involved only when it is participating in a nuclear reaction...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. its not all chem reactions of different particles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No...Ok I am trying once again.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The atom consists of electrons, protons, and neutrons ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3All these days, whatever you were studying, involved the studies of the games played by electrons

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3In all the chemical reactions, that you studied, the neutron and the proton, never played any role

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3At least not directly...

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I mean in any of the reactions that you studied till now, you never found a neutron getting removed or added

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes we did... thats what forms an ion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The only things that were removed or added were the electrons.

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now since that part of the chemistry had no involvement with the nucleus of the atom, we don't call it nucleus chemistry..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3sorry, I meant nuclear chemistry

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3But whatever you are going to study now, will have direct involvement of the nucleus, i.e. either the proton or the neutron or both

2bornot2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3And in nuclear chemistry the involvement of the electrons don't count...
