. Each of the following nuclides is known to undergo radioactive decay by production of a beta particle, e 1 0 . Write a balanced nuclear equation for each process.

a. C 6 14

b. C 55 140 s

c. T 90 234 h

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

Interpret the beta decay of 6 C14.

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

Beta decay of C produces N with 7 proton as follows:

6C14    

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

Interpret the beta decay of 5 5 Cs140.

Concept Introduction:

The decaying of an atom takes place by three type of decay such as alpha decay, beta decay, gama decay.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

Interpret the beta decay of 9 0 Th 234.

Concept Introduction:
