SHORT ANSWER TYPE QUESTIONS

Q.16. Why do stable nuclei never have more protons than neutrons?
Ans.
The reason is that protons, being charged particles, repel each other. This repulsion becomes so great in nuclei with more than 10 protons or so, that an excess of neutrons which produce only attractive forces, is required for stability.
Important point: As you get to heavier elements, with each new proton you add, there is a larger repulsive force. The nuclear force is attractive and stronger than the electrostatic force, but it has a finite range. So you need to add extra neutrons, which do not repel each other, to add extra attractive force. You eventually reach a point where the nucleus is just too big, and tends to decay via alpha decay or spontaneous fission.
To view this in quantum mechanical terms, the proton potential well is not as deep as the neutron well due to the electrostatic repulsion. [Due to the Pauli exclusion principle, you only get two particles per level (spin up and spin down)]. If one well is filled higher than the other, you tend to get a beta decay to even them out. As the nuclei get larger, the neutron well gels deeper as compared to the proton well and you get more neutrons than protons.


Q.17. Consider a radioactive nucleus A which decays to a stable nucleus C through the following sequence:
A → B → C
Here B is an intermediate nuclei which is also radioactive.
Considering that there are N0 atoms of A initially, plot the graph showing the variation of number of atoms of A and B versus time.
Ans. 
Consider radioactive nucleus A have N0 atoms of A initially; or at t = 0, NA = N0 (maximum) whole NB = 0. As time increases, NA decreases exponentially and the number of atoms of B increases. After some time NB becomes maximum. As B is an intermediate nuclei which is also radioactive, it also start decaying and finally drop to zero exponentially by radioactive decay law. We can represent the situation as shown in the graph.

Q.18. A piece of wood from the ruins of an ancient building was found to have a 14C activity of 12 disintegrations per minute per gram of its carbon content. The 14C activity of the living wood is 16 disintegrations per minute per gram. How long ago did the tree, from which the wooden sample came, die? Given half-life of 14C is 5760 years.
Ans.
Rate of disintegration in old wood sample of C-14 radioactive atoms is 12 atoms per min gm. Initially rate of disintegration of C-14 when the tree was live=16 atoms per min per gm.
T1/2 of C-14 nuclei=5760 years
According to radioactive decay law,
N=N0e-λt or R=R0e-λt
12=16e-λt

Q.19. Are the nucleons fundamental particles, or do they consist of still smaller parts? One way to find out is to probe a nucleon just as Rutherford probed an atom. What should be the kinetic energy of an electron for it to be able to probe a nucleon? Assume the diameter of a nucleon to be approximately 10–15 m.
Ans. 
To detect the properties of nucleons inside the nucleus the wavelength of particle which may detect nucleons that must be of size of nucleons (10-15 m). So the wavelength of particle which can detect the nucleons must be equal to or less than 10-15
λ = 10-15 m
λ = h/p
∵ E = hv = hc/λ    [∵c = vλ]

NCERT Exemplar: Nuclei - 2 Notes | Study Physics Class 12 - NEET
=12.4×10-34+42=1.24×101×10+8
K.E. = 1.24×109eV
So the K.E. of particle which may detect nucleon inside the nucleus must be of 1.24×10eV per particle.

Q.20. A nuclide 1 is said to be the mirror isobar of nuclide 2 if Z1 =N2 and Z2 =N1 .
(a) What nuclide is a mirror isobar of 2311Na ?
(b) Which nuclide out of the two mirror isobars have greater binding energy and why?
Ans.

Here Z is atomic number and N is no. of neutron in 11Na23
Z1=11
N1=23-11=12
Mirror isobar of 11Na23 is
Z= N= 12
So Mg is isobar of 11Na23
So 12Mg23 is the mirror isobar of 11Na23
(b) As the neutrons in 12Mg23 are ‘11’ and in 11Na23 are ‘12’ so, the number of neutrons in Na is larger than Mg and hence nuclear short range attractive forces in Na will be larger than repulsive electrostatic forces between proton-proton.
So, 11Na23 has more binding energy than 12Mg23

Q.22. Deuteron is a bound state of a neutron and a proton with a binding energy B = 2.2 MeV. A γ -ray of energy E is aimed at a deuteron nucleus to try to break it into a (neutron + proton) such that the n and p move in the direction of the incident γ-ray.
If E = B, show that this cannot happen. Hence calculate how much bigger than B must E be for such a process to happen.
Ans.
Binding energy (B) of deuteron = 2.2 MeV
Some part of energy of γ-ray is used up against binding energy B = 2.2 MeV and the rest part will impart K.E. to neutron and proton.

NCERT Exemplar: Nuclei - 2 Notes | Study Physics Class 12 - NEET
If this was true, show that if the neutron was at rest, the proton and electron would emerge with fixed energies and calculate them.Experimentally, the electron energy was found to have a large range.
Ans.  
Neutron was at rest before β decay from neutron. Hence energy of neutron=En=mncand momentum of neutron pn=0 as its velocity is zero.

Pn=pp+ p(Beta)
O= pp+ pe

∴ By the law of conservation of energy,
NCERT Exemplar: Nuclei - 2 Notes | Study Physics Class 12 - NEET
and mnc2 =938 MeV
and mec2= 0.5 meV

Q.26. Nuclei with magic no. of proton Z = 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 52 and magic no. of neutrons N = 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82 and 126 are found to be very stable.
(i) Verify this by calculating the proton separation energy Sp for 120Sn (Z = 50) and 121Sb = (Z = 51).
The proton separation energy for a nuclide is the minimum energy required to separate the least tightly bound proton from a nucleus of that nuclide. It is given by
Sp = (MZ–1, N + MH – MZ,N )c2.
Given 119In = 118.9058u, 120Sn = 119.902199u, 121Sb = 120.903824u, 1H = 1.0078252u.
(ii) What does the existence of magic number indicate?
Ans.

(i) Sp = (MZ–1, N + MH – MZ,N )c2
Here in this formula MZ-1 is the mass of atom of Z-1 atomic number.
Mis the mass of atom of mass number Z.
∴ MZ-1= Mass of atom whose atomic number is 50-1=49.
It is 49In119 in this case MZ-1 = 49In119 = 118.9058 and N=119 - 49 = 70.
Sp for 50Sn120=c2[118.9058+1.0078252-199.902199]
Sp for 50Sn120=0.0114362c2
Now for Sp of 51Sb121
Sp= [Mz-1, N+MH-Mz,N]c2
Z=51, Z-1=50 for Sn
MZ-1=mass of 50Sn=199.902199 u
∴ Sp for 51Sb121= [199.902199+1.0078252-120.903824]c2
= 0.0059912c2
∴ Sp(50Sn120)>Sp(51Sb121)
(ii) The existence of magic numbers indicates that the shell structure of nucleus is similar to the shell structure of atom. This also explains the peaks in binding energy per nucleon curve.
