Find the energy emitted in the β decay of 60 C o .

To determine

The energy emitted in the β decay of 60Co.

Explanation

Given:

The parent nuclide is 60Co.

Formula used:

The general equation of that nuclide follows is given by,

  ZAXZ+1AY+β1+v¯e

Here, the electrons anti neutrino is v¯e, the daughter nuclide is Y, the parent nuclide is X, the atomic number is Z and the atomic mass is A.

The energy is given by,

  E=(Δm)c2

Here, the change in mass is Δm, the energy is E and the speed of light is c.

The change in mass is given by,

  Δm=mpmd

Here, the mass of parent nuclideis mp and the mass of daughter nuclide is md.

Calculation:

The general equation of that nuclide follows is calculated as,

  2760Co2860Ni+β1+v¯e

The atomic mass of cobalt is mp=59
