Expert Answer:

There are two types of nuclear reactions:

  • Nuclear decay reactions
  • ·         Nuclear transmutation reactions 

 In a nuclear decay reaction, an unstable nucleus emits radiation and is transformed into the nucleus of one or more other elements.

 

In nuclear transmutation reaction, a nucleus reacts with another nucleus to form a product nucleus that has more mass than the starting material.
