which action would result in the more (financially) valuable product: taking one proton from each nucleus in a sample of gold or adding one proton to each gold nucleus?
Taking a proton (p) away
79 AU - 1p = atomic number 78??
Adding a Proton
Au79 + 1p = ??80
Which is more valuable?????
Platinum and mercury. Is platinum more valuable?
