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

a. W 74 188

b. K 19 40

c. A 79 198 u

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

To write the balanced equation of beta decay of the given nuclide 188 7 4 W.

Concept Introduction:

The radioactive decay is the decay of the alpha, beta emission etc. The decay of these type of particles produces the stable nucleus. The nuclear transformation is the chain reaction.

Chain reaction means the reaction proceed in continuity till it will form the stable nucleus.

Beta decay is the decay in which atomic number increases by 1 and no change in the mass number.

Explanation

Beta decay is the decay in which atomic number increases by 1 and no change in the mass number.

The balanced equation after the beta decay of the given element nuclide.

18874W

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

To write the balanced equation of beta decay of the given nuclide 40 1 9 K.

Concept Introduction:

The radioactive decay is the decay of the alpha, beta emission etc. The decay of these type of particles produces the stable nucleus. The nuclear transformation is the chain reaction.

Chain reaction means the reaction proceed in continuity till it will form the stable nucleus.

Beta decay is the decay in which atomic number increases by 1 and no change in the mass number.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

To write the balanced equation of beta decay of the given nuclide 198 7 9 Au.

Concept Introduction:

The radioactive decay is the decay of the alpha, beta emission etc. The decay of these type of particles produces the stable nucleus. The nuclear transformation is the chain reaction.
