Ok, so what exactly are you willing to know about Nuclear Chemistry?
anonymous
  • anonymous
just everything
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
That would take years...
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok... just in general.... what is it?
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
Anyway, 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..
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya.... I know about electrons... cause we just finished learning about atoms and atomic structure!
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
And 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...
anonymous
  • anonymous
so.. the unit is all about chemical reactions, of such chemicals?
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
The nucleus gets involved only when it is participating in a nuclear reaction...
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
I didn't quite get you there...
anonymous
  • anonymous
ahh
anonymous
  • anonymous
so.. its not all chem reactions of different particles?
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
No...Ok I am trying once again.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok...
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
The atom consists of electrons, protons, and neutrons ...
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya.. we learned that from the previous unit
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
All these days, whatever you were studying, involved the studies of the games played by electrons
anonymous
  • anonymous
ahhhhj
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
In all the chemical reactions, that you studied, the neutron and the proton, never played any role
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
At least not directly...
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
I mean in any of the reactions that you studied till now, you never found a neutron getting removed or added
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes we did... thats what forms an ion
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
The only things that were removed or added were the electrons.
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
Now since that part of the chemistry had no involvement with the nucleus of the atom, we don't call it nucleus chemistry..
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok.........
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
sorry, I meant nuclear chemistry
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
But 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
  • 2bornot2b
And in nuclear chemistry the involvement of the electrons don't count...
