    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    in what ways are energy changes which occur in chemical reactions similar to those which occur in radioactivity? how are they different?

    2. Relevant equations

    none.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Both have energy changes. The protons are different??

    Try reading up on radioactive decay. What particles are ejected from the atom?

    What particles are tied to chemical bonds?
