## ejune420 one year ago What happens in the artificial transmutation of an element? Included an example.

1. Rogue

In artificial transmutation, an element is transformed into another element by being shot by another element or particle. For example, if you shoot an alpha particle (Helium-4) at Nitrogen-14, you transform the nitrogen into an oxygen and get a hydrogen byproduct. $_{7}^{14}N + _{2}^{4}He \rightarrow _{8}^{17}O + _{1}^{1}H$
