Textbook Problem

The uranium-235 radioactive decay series, beginning with 92 235 U and ending with 92 235 PB , occurs in the following sequence: α, β, α, β, α, α, α, α, β. α. Write an equation for each step in this series.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The equation is to be written for the radioactive decay series for uranium-235.

Concept introduction:

In this radioactive decay process the unstable isotopes loses their energy by emitting radiation. It is converted in to stable isotopes. The emitting radiations are Alpha emission and Beta emission.

β − decay (electron emission): -10β

α − decay (Helium nuclei emission): 24He

Explanation

The following radioactive decay series is
