Decay of 9Be
I know that this would rather be considered as physics than chemistry, but i don't really know where else i could ask this question.
In an atomic bomb, there's a neutron generator, consisting of two elements:
209Po and 9Be. The 209Po isotope emits alpha-particles, which, when they hit the 9Be, cause them to decay to 8Be and neutrons.
Can anybody write down an equation for that reaction ?
