The formulas of reaction of the carbon cycle (cn-cycle)

The carbon cycle is the sequence of thermonuclear reactions in stars as a result of which helium is produced from hydrogen. Carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, flourine are involved as catalysts in reactions of this type. The carbon cycle is considered to be the source of energy of massive stars in the early stages of their existence.

Reaction:
Verification:

Correct:
C126 + p11 → N137 + γ
270 + 12 → 282 + 3
282≠285
C126 + p11 → N137
282=282

Reaction:
Verification:

Correct:
C136 + p11 → N147 + γ
303 + 12 → 315 + 3
315≠318
C136 + p11 → N147
315=315

Reaction:
Verification:

Correct:
N147 + p11 → O157 + γ
315 + 12 → 327 + 3
327≠330
N147 + p11 → O157
327=327
