One of the key concepts that students get confused about when they study high-school chemistry and physics, is the difference between a chemical and a nuclear reaction. This concept is something quite easy but since most students forget the most basic definitions of chemical reaction, they find the new concept of nuclear reaction a little difficult to digest.
Just remember this simple rule, whenever there is a transfer or sharing of electrons in the outermost shells of an atom, the reaction is a chemical reaction. On the other hand a nuclear reaction is one in which the change takes place within the nucleus, not outside it. Thus its neutrons may decompose and turn into radiation emitting outwards. In most cases, the atom's atomic number changes and it decomposes to atom of some other element.

New born babies are required to sleep at least 18 hours a day; this isn't a continuous sleep as they have to wake up to for food. But when the new born reaches an age of 4 months, he tends to deviate from his sleeping pattern.

This is termed as 4 months sleep regression in babies and is one of the toughest tests for parents after the baby is born.
