Nuclear Transmutation
Subject: Physics | Topics:

Natural transmutation by stellar nucleosynthesis in the past created most of the actual heavier chemical elements within the universe. Nuclear transmutation is the conversion of one compound element or an isotope in to another. Because any element (isotope) is defined by its quantity of protons (and neutrons) inside its atoms, i. at the. in the atomic nucleus, nuclear transmutation occurs in any process where this range is changed.
