. Which of the following nuclear processes results in a decrease in the neutron-to-proton ratio? Justify your answer.

a. Chapter 19, Problem 20QAP, . Which of the following nuclear processes results in a decrease in the neutron-to-proton ratio? , example  1particle production

b. Positron production

c. Electron capture

d. Chapter 19, Problem 20QAP, . Which of the following nuclear processes results in a decrease in the neutron-to-proton ratio? , example  2particle production

e. Chapter 19, Problem 20QAP, . Which of the following nuclear processes results in a decrease in the neutron-to-proton ratio? , example  3ray production

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

If the beta particle production results in decrease in neutron to proton ratio or not should be determined.

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

The beta particle production is shown below:

82X210   83X210+ e-

Neutron /proton ratio of reactant

Interpretation Introduction
