Textbook Problem

In each of the following radioactive decay processes, supply the missing particle.

a. 60Co → 60Ni + ?

b. 97Tc + ? → 97Mo

c. 99Tc → 99Ru + ?

d. 239Pu → 235U + ?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The missing particles in the given radioactive decay process are to be determined.

Concept introduction: Nuclei of radioactive element decompose in various ways. There are two major categories. One involves a change in mass number of the decaying nucleus, while others do not. Types of radioactive processes include α particle production, β particle production, γ ray production, electron capture and many others.

To determine: The missing particles in the given radioactive decay process.

Explanation

The missing particle is 10e .

The radioactive decay for which the missing particle is to be determined is given below.

60Co60Ni + ?

Since, the mass number of <
