Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tritium @kym02
How many protons and neutrons respectively in the helium-3 nucleus? What has to happen to turn a tritium nucleus into a helium-3 nucleus?
There are 3 neutrons and 2 protons in the helium-3 nucleus and in order for a tritium nucleus to turn into a helium-3 nucleus, the tritium must undergo beta decay. @whpalmer4 ^_^ got it now, thank you! @Koikkara Thanks a bunch for the extra info! :)

Other answers:

uh, helium-3 has 2 protons and 1 neutron, total of 3 nucleons. beta decay is the operative means to get from H-3 to He-3.
