# Calculating Atomic Masses After Fission Collision

Not what you're looking for?

If a particular atom of 235 U is struck by a neutron causing fission to occur, and two of the products are 3 neutrons and 93 Kr what is the atomic number and mass number of the third product?

##### Solution Summary

This solution explains how to find the atomic mass of a product of nuclear fission using the periodic table and equation-balancing methods.

##### Solution Preview

Looking at Uranium the atomic number is 92 and so we can say the following:

U(235,92) + n(1,0) ----> 3n(1,0) + Kr(93,36) + x

in the following presentation the first number between paranthesis is the mass number the 2nd is the atomic number. We know that neutrons have a mass number of one ...
