### What is the difference between an ordinary chemical equation and a nuclear equation?

An ordinary chemical equation is for a chemical reaction,
changing molecules into other molecules. The balanced numbers are
numbers of atoms of particular elements.
A nuclear decay equation is for a nuclear reaction, changing an
atom of an element into an atom of another element plus subatomic
particles. The balanced numbers are numbers of subatomic particles
of particular types.

### What is the similarity between an ordinary chemical equation and a nuclear equation?

A chemical equation puts down on the LHS the chemicals mixed
together and on the RHS the results. A nuclear equation puts on the
LHS the target element, with an incident particle if relevant, and
on the RHS the results. But in a chemical process the constituent
elements must balance on each side, whereas with a nuclear change
the elements can be converted to other elements.
