Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret and complete the given table.

Initial nuclide Product nuclide Particle produced
9 4 Pu239 9 2 U235
8 2 Pb214 8 3 Bi214
2 7 Co60 2 8 Ni60
4 3 Tc99 4 4 Ru99
9 3 Np239 9 4 Pu239

Concept Introduction:

The decaying of an atom takes place by three type of decay such as alpha decay, beta decay, gama decay.

In alpha decay, an alpha particle with mass 4m and electron 2e removed from nuclide while in beta decay two type of decay are possible beta (+) and beta (-). In gamma decay, nuclide will remain same to the original one.

Explanation

94Pu239   92U235+2He4

Pu-239 produces U-235 when undergoes alpha decay.

For rest of the elements beta decay takes place as follows:

82Pb214    83Bi214+ e-1

27Co60   28Ni60+ e-1

43Tc99
