Textbook Problem

What is the product of the following nuclear decay processes? Write an equation for each process.

  1. (a) Gallium-67 decays by electron capture.
  2. (b) Potassium-38 decays with positron emission.
  3. (c) Technetium-99m decays with γ emission.
  4. (d) Manganese-56 decays by β emission.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The product of the decay process and their equation has to be written.

Concept Introduction:

In the radioactive decay process the unstable isotopes loses their energy by emitting radiation in order to attain stable species. It is converted in to stable isotopes by emitting positron +10β , gamma 00γ , Beta β10, alpha 24He and or by electron capture 10e .

Isotopes: The two elements with same atomic number but with different mass number are considered as isotopes of each other.

Explanation

The radioactive isotope of gallium-67 undergoes electron capture transmuted to zinc-67. In this electron capture takes place, the unstable isotopes converted into more stable isotopes.
