. What is a decay series?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret decay sereis.

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

Decay sereis is the sereis in which the product obtained from first reaction of decay undergoes another reaction of decay to produce desired product.

A decay chain is shown below:

82Pb207    80X203+2He4
