Exercise 19.1 The decay series for U 92 238 is represented in Fig. 19.1. Write the balanced nuclear equation for each of the following radioactive decays.

a. Alpha-particle production by R 88 226 a    b. Beta-particle production by P 82 214 b

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

Interpret production of alpha particle from 8 8 Ra226.

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

Alpha particle decaying of radium results in formation of radon with mass 224 as follows:

88Ra226  

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

Interpret production of beta particle from 8 2 Pb214.

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.
