Positively charged particles of radiation emitted from the decay of radioactive substances are known as
A) protons
B) alpha particles
C) beta particles
D) electrons
E) gamma rays

Expert Answer

Step 1

Nuclear or radiation decay are primarily of three types: alpha, beta and gamma decay.

Alpha particles are positively charged, beta particles are negatively charged, and gamma radiation is electrically neutral .

Alpha particles (&alp...
