Nitrogen in Cosmic Rays

Chemistry Level 1

\[_7^{14}N + n \space \rightarrow \space _?^?X + ^3_1T\] Cosmic rays can irradiate neutrons (\(n\)). In the above reaction, a \(n\) joins a nitrogen atom in the atmosphere, producing a Tritium (\(T\)) atom and one other atom (\(X\)). \[\]Determine the identity of X and give your answer as the mass number divided by the atomic number.
