Expert Answer:

 Dear Student
Inversion : Inversion is the reversal of the configuration of the molecule.

Racemic is a sample of chiral compound that consists of a 1:1 mixture of enantiomers is known as recemic.

Racemization is to become racemic. 
A sample whose enantiomeric excess decreases in the course of a reaction (S), or
A stereocenter whose configurational purity decreases in the course of a reaction (A).
We hope that clarifies your query.
