Nuclear Reactions - a General Overview

Nuclear reactions involve transformation of the nucleus. These transformation can involve emission of a particle (decomposition), absorbing a particle (electron capture), splitting into smaller nuclei (fission) and combining to form larger nuclei (fusion). Some of these reactions are "encouraged" by the absorbtion of particles as well.

The general types of nuclear reactions that you should recognize and undersand are:
