Nuclear Transmutation

Q. Elements 104, 105, and 106 have been named rutherfordium (Rf), dubnium (Db), and seaborgium (Sg), respectively. These elements are synthesized from californium-249 by bombarding with carbon-12, nitrogen-15, and oxygen-18 nuclei, respectively. Four neutrons are formed in each reaction as well. (b) Write the equations in shorthand notation. (for this part, omit all atomic numbers for nuclides.)
