. What type of radioactive decay must occur for each of the following transformations?

a. Transformation 1

b. Transformation 2

c. Transformation 3

Chapter 19, Problem 10ALQ, . What type of radioactive decay must occur for each of the following transformations? a.

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

Interpret the decay taking place in transformation 1 in graph.

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

In transformation 1, mass number of nuclide is reducing from 214 to 210 and atomic number is reducing from 84 to 82. It means alpha decay 2 He4 is taking place.

84X214

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

Interpret the decay taking place in transformation 2 in graph.

Concept Introduction:
