Textbook Problem

99Tc decays to 99Ru. What particle is produced in this decay?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The particle produced in the decay process of 4399Tc to 4499Ru has to be predicted.

Concept interpretation:

Balancing nuclear reaction equation: The balanced nuclear reaction should conserve both mass number and atomic number.

  • The sum of the mass numbers of the reactants should be equal to the sum of mass numbers of the products in the reaction.
  • The sum of atomic numbers (or the atomic charge) of the reactants should be equal to the sum of atomic numbers (or the atomic charge) of the products in the reaction.
Explanation

Technetium-99 undergoes decay process and converted to Ruthenium-99 with the emission of a particle.

By considering the law of conservation, the emitted particle is beta-particle.
