. When a nucleus emits a neutron, does the atomic number of the nucleus change? Does the mass number of the nucleus change? Explain.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the effect on atomic number and mass number during emission of neutron.

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

A neutron not having net charge but consist of mass of single unit.

The reaction for emission of a neutron shown as follows:
