What do the three types of beta decay have in common that is distinctly different from alpha decay?

To determine

The three types of beta decay have in common that is distinctly different from alpha decay.

Explanation
  • In the beta decay as one of the neutrons in the nucleus all of a sudden turn into proton which leads to increase in the atomic number of an element. As the atomic number changes due to which nucleus creates and releases an electron that provides a positive charge to compensate by transforming a neutron to proton. Another particle which releases is known as the neutrino, it has no charge on it as well as any mass. The free electrons as well as emitted electrons are the radiation related to the beta decay...
