When a nucleus splits it is called ___.
fission

When a nucleus combines with two or more nuclei to form a different nucleus it is called ___.
fussion

Name the four types of decay.
Alpha, Beta (electron emission), Beta+ (positron capture), and Gamma

The difference between the mass of an atom and the sum of the masses of its protons, neutrons, and electrons.
mass defect

the energy that holds the protons together in the nucleus of an atom
nuclear binding energy

What is Einstein's equation for finding energy?
 e=mc^{2}
 energy = mass defect x the speed of light^{2}

the transformation of atoms of one element into atoms of a different element due to a nuclear reaction.
transmutation

one way transmutation can occur.
radioactive decay
