Inhaling, Exhaling. Walking, etc.

All fields of science are just applied physics.

I re-did the wqter electrolysis using baking soda as the electrolyte. I am concerned I lost some of the hydrogen collected because there may be a leak in the tube (there is a link to my extended wiki in my Braingle wiki and I have pictures of some of myy elements in the Element Collection tab)

Don't ask me. When I was in school, the periodic table wasn't even finished. They add Neptunium during high school.

Did they have plutonium?

Plutonium was created about two years after the Yanks went into war. They created it by colliding neutrons into U-235, and the uranium occasionally absorbs the neutrons, making plutonium.

One sec. Isn't that nuclear fission?

Well, from what I know, they used U-238, which is not that reactive, to make plutonium.

Oneeeee sec. If they collide it with neutrons, where do the two extra protons come from? Uranium is 92, plutonium is 94...

That is beta decay. Neutron converts into proton and electron. It is neither fission nor fusion.

Every problem can be solved with a trick but finding that trick itself needs another trick.

Is that beta minus or beta plus? One of them was Electron Capture.

Yeah, look at Mnk's avatar for a picture

170 people arrested! Wow! Must have been some skirmish...

Electron capture is different from beta decay.

Beta positive= proton → neutron + positron (e+)
Beta negative= neutron → proton + electron (e-)
Electron capture= proton + electron → neutron

OK. I'm a chemist, not a physicist.
