bismuth -210 is an alpha emitter. Write an equation for this nuclear reactionand identify the product nucleus


Expert Answer

Step 1

Alpha decay is a type of nuclear decay in which a nucleus of helium atom is emitted from the parent nucleus and a new nucleus is formed.

Step 2

In the nuclear equation of alpha decay of bismuth -210, the atomic number of the nucleus will be decreased by a factor of...
