# 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.
