Question
Chapter 19, Problem 19E
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Equation for the decay of 95241Am by alpha particle production is to be stated. Final stable nucleus produced by the decay of 95241Am after successive alpha beta particle production is to be stated. The 11 intermediate nuclides produced are to be identified.

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. Electron capture decay involves the capturing of one of the inner orbitals electrons by the nucleus.

Beta particle production decay involves the production of beta particle (10e) that is assigned mass number zero.

A helium nucleus 24He is produced in the alpha decay process.

To determine: The equation for the decay of 95241Am by alpha particle production; final stable nuclide produced in the stated decay series and the 11 intermediate nuclides formed.
