. When a nuclide produces a beta particle, the atomic number of the resulting new nuclide is one unit _________ than that of the original nuclide.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

To fill in the blanks:

When a produces a beta particles the atomic number of the resulting nuclide is one unit......than that of original nuclide.

Concept Introduction:

The radioactive decay is the conversion of the unstable nuclei to the stable nuclei with some other by product like alpha, beta and gamma.The unstable nuclei is called parent nuclei which forms the daughter nuclei which is either forms by combination or by decomposition of nuclei. When they are formed by combination known as fusion and when they are form by decomposition known as fission. The beta particles increase the atomic number of an atom by 1 and no change in the mass of an atom. While alpha particles decreases the mass number by 4 and atomic number by 2.
