Ionization can affect the atom nucleous?
I;m posting this conversation as a debate to allow TED comunity, scientific and not scientific, express their opinion on scientific topics and to encourare the scientific research and critical thinking. Any ideas expressed on this topic are welcome.
I remember when in scool my science teacher told me that electrical reactions, such as ionization, and chemical reactions does not have any effect on the nucleous?
I do not read enogh to have an anwer to this question. If the charge of an electron is equal to the charge of a proton but with different polarity, why it does not create any effect on the nucleous?
Readings on cold fusion topic make me think my teacher was wrong and there is a little effect on the nucleous caused by chemical processes such as electrolysis.
