What if a nuclide undergoes two successive decays such that it becomes the original nuclide? Which decays could account for this? Provide an example.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret an example which results in production of original nuclide with two successive decays.

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 results in production of original nuclide from positive charged cation. The example for beta decay is follows:
