Give a full balanced nuclear equation fro the synthesis of xenon-133. A full balanced nuclear equation includes α particles, β particles, positrons and gamma rays.
You have to have a starting point, what chemical do you want to synthesize from? If Xe131, add two neutrons.
Here is a site or two where you can read more. Apparently, most of the Xe-133 is produced for medical use, especially in pulmonary diagnostics, by fission from U 235 or other U fissionable material.
For this next one, scroll down to the isotopes section.
