Hi could anyone help me with this question: Explain, if any, the difference in reactivity between the 3 carbon isotopes? Tip: ask yourself ‘do they all react with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide or only some?’. Give a reason for your answer.
I would think it has a lot to do with the question - when something is short-lived such as Carbon-14 then it has very little chance to react with other elements as it will decay into other elements. So you’re very unlikely to get 14-CO2. Can’t think of anything else at the moment, but there may be other things.
I wouldn't exactly call that "short-lived". I suspect that 5700 years might be long enough for it to turn into CO2.
