Atomic Fusion of Molecular Deuterium

Chemistry Level pending

\[1) \space \space _1^2H + _1^2H \rightarrow _?^?A + _1^1p \]\[ 2) \space \space _1^2H + _1^2H \rightarrow _?^?B + _0^1n \]\[ 3) \space \space _?^?A + _?^?B \rightarrow _?^?C + _0^1n + _1^1p \] Two deuterium (\(_1^2H\)) atoms have an equal chance of undergoing atomic fusion through reaction \(1\) or \(2\). A third reaction occurs from the fusion of \(A\) and \(B\); the products of the first two reactions; respectively. \[\] Determine the identity of \(C\) and give your answer as the \(\text{mass number}\) divided by the \(\text{atomic number}\) of \(C\). \[Key: \\ _1^1p = proton \\ _0^1n = neutron\]
