Write the decay equation of rhodium -93


Expert Answer

Step 1

The decay equation of rhodium -93 is to be written.

Step 2

A radioactive decay is a process in which an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy and breaks down to stable nuclei with release of particles like positron, alpha particle, beta particle or gamma particle.

Step 3

Rhodium-93 decays to ruthenium-93 by positron emission.

A positron is also known as an antielectron which means it has mass of an electron but has a charge of +1. In positron emission, a proton of a nucleus is converted into a n...
