Unlimited-Tritium, as a form of Hydrogen, is found naturally in air and water. Most hydrogen is made up of one proton, and an orbital electron, but tritium has two extra neutrons in the nucleus. In nature, it is produced by cosmic rays in two source terms: 14N + 1n ---> 3H + 12Cand2H + 2H ---> 3H + 1
Tritium is not normally considered to be naturally occurring. The amounts produced by cosmic rays are trace. To produce it in meaningful amounts you need either a nuclear reactor or bomb. Besides it decays rapidly, in 61.3 years any present now is effectively gone.
Not much and in 5 * 12.26 years (61.3 years) it will effectively be gone.
Tritium is an isotope of hydrogen and is extremely rare. It has two neutrons in the nucleus, whereas hydrogen most commonly has none. Tritium can be formed in Earth's atmosphere by the action of cosmic rays on atoms of nitrogen.
In ordinary water, exactly 0 atoms as Tritium decays too rapidly (halflife 12.26 years) for any that was on earth when it formed (billions of years ago) to remain. In contaminated water, either deliberately or accidentally, it would depend on how much contaminate was added and the tritium concentration in it. Tritium can only be manufactured somewhere there is a high neutron flux (e.g., nuclear reactor or bomb, a star).
Tritium. What did you think it was?
The oxide of tritium is tritium oxide, sometimes called super heavy water, or 3H2O.
Tritium symbols: T or 3H.
There are two neutrons in a tritium nucleus.
Yes, tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen
The symbol of tritium is T.
Tritium is an isotope of hydrogen, so it is colorless.
Approximately 3 grams
There is no critical mass of tritium, as it cannot fission.
Tritium symbols: T or 3H.
Tritium is not the most stable isotope known.
Tritium Dont Eat Anything? They Are Type Of Watches.... :)
Tritium is an extremely rare form of hydrogen. 99.86% is protium 00.014% is Deuterium 7 x 10-16 % is Tritium
Tritium, or Hydrogen 3, has an atomic mass of 3.016.
I can get a tritium from hydrogen by reacting a neutron with a hydrogen by some techniques (security).
Tritium decay to helium-3.
The most likely fuel for fusion on earth is a mixture of deuterium and tritium (both isotopes of hydrogen)
Sorry, tritium is the heaviest isotope of hydrogen.hydrogen - 1.008145 AMUdeuterium - 2.014740 AMUtritium - 3.017005 AMU
Tritium, n., A radioactive isotope of hydrogen having an atomic mass of 3.017 and a nucleus composed of 1 proton and 2 neutrons. Its halflife is 12.26 years and it decays by beta decay to Helium-3. Tritium is normally only produced synthetically on earth by placing sealed pellets of Lithium in the neutron flux of a nuclear reactor.
12.3 years is the half life of the isotope tritium.
