O beam is to the left and the
O target is to the right. The beam collides with the target nuclei and fuses. The new system,
S has large amounts of energy and a quantity called angular momentum, which is a quantum number. Within 10
of a second, the
S nucleus "cools" itself by emitting a proton and a neutron. This new nucleus is
P and is still in an excited state. It emits many gamma-rays until it reaches its ground states. This entire process is takes place inside of 10
of a second .
